Working as a communicator at a large, decentralized institution can be extremely exciting and exasperating at the same time. There are a lot of amazing things happening here but it’s hard to know where to begin sometimes. How are other U-M departments recruiting students? How are colleges using social media to reach their audiences? What are the best ways to share research findings with the media?

Communicators’ Forum was created to provide information and resources for marketing and communications professionals at the University of Michigan — to provide a regular forum for communicators to actually communicate with each other! We host special sessions throughout the year where we discuss the latest topics and best practices at U-M and in the field. These gatherings are also a great opportunity to share ideas, network and collaborate with colleagues from across campus.

We also offer six Specialty Sub-Groups that meet to cover specific areas of interest:
