Communications and Advocacy

Communications and Advocacy are ambassadors for, and guardians of, the University and its public profile. 

We work across the institution to promote and enhance the University’s reputation, academic and student achievements in national and international media.

We engage our 9,000 staff and 45,000 students with campus life and developments at the University. And we build relationships with local, national and international businesses, politicians and policymakers to increase understanding of, and active support for, the aims and activities of the University.
