Student Affairs Communications

We work with Student Affairs units and other campus stakeholders to provide strategic communications planning, delivery, and evaluation efforts for incoming and current Dalhousie students. Our team engages with students through traditional communication, social media, web, mobile platforms, and emerging channels. In addition to accessing the team and channels described below, we are also available to consult in communications planning and give advice, support, and recommendations.
