Amherst College has a powerful story to tell—about our high-achieving students, distinctive faculty research, innovative learning opportunities, accomplished alumni, our true commitment to diversity and inclusion, a robust financial aid program, and much more.

The Office of Communications has expertise in writing and editing, media relations, social media, photography, video production, website design and strategy, graphic design, customized strategic communications planning, magazine development and production, and event planning and promotion. 

We serve the College through close partnerships with colleagues across campus. Our work is organized around a strategic communications plan, and you can request our assistance using our request form

Due to the volume of requests we receive, we prioritize projects based on our team’s capacity and alignment with our strategic goals. We can, however, offer guidance and resources to any member of the College community.

Let’s Collaborate

    The earlier you reach out, the more successful our collaboration will be.
    Bring us your ideas, projects, goals, and timelines, and we’ll recommend a communications plan for your specific situation.
    Tell us about your event and we’ll provide guidance on reserving space, tips for promoting your event, and more.
