Marketing & Communications

In the Marketing and Communications Department, you’ll find a committed team of storytellers who work to share and celebrate the amazing research, teaching and learning that happens at CBU every day. We are here to drive and support initiatives, projects, campaigns and events designed to achieve CBU’s student recruitment, retention and service goals.
