Our Work

The Office of Communications promotes the excellence of Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff and produces stories about their impact and contributions to the world.

Our Teams

The Office is divided into three groups: creative services, media relations, and news and editorial services. Each group produces informative and engaging content about the institution, as well as provides strategic guidance and expertise to Dartmouth community members interested in reaching internal or external audiences.

Dartmouth's media relations team facilitates engagement with the media and provides advice on how best to extend reach to external audiences. Social media is managed through media relations.

Dartmouth's news and editorial team reports on news about and by the community. The team is responsible for storytelling that populates college-produced communications properties, including the Dartmouth home site, Dartmouth News, and Dartmouth Life—our print publication shared with the alumni body.

Dartmouth's creative services team is responsible for graphic design, digital production, photography, and videography for channels managed by the Office of Communications. It also supports high-priority creative projects for offices around campus.


The mission of the Office of Communications is to promote and protect Dartmouth's reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research. Through compelling storytelling and the production of high-quality informative content, we enhance appreciation for Dartmouth's contributions to the world and understanding of its place of distinction within higher education. 


We seek to use creative, innovative storytelling and content creation to advance the overall vision of enhanced academic excellence for Dartmouth.
