On Campus

Marketing + Communications

Creating and managing a college website that's functional and engaging. Creating compelling online content. Editing a college alumni magazine that's read and talked about. Tweeting with the best of them. Getting media attention for the good works of faculty and staff. Publicizing campus events. Saint Michael's Office of Marketing and Communication is responsible for all of that and more, with the goal of reaching prospective students, parents, alumni and the general public with the story of Saint Michael's College.

We work with members of the Saint Michael's community to manage Saint Michael's image locally, nationally and internationally, strengthen our brand, and create compelling, consistent communications on the web, through social media, print publications and traditional and new media. Our goal is to engage prospective students and their families, alumni, donors and friends with the college in ways that generate positive interest, applications, gifts, pride and support for the college.

In short, the Office of Marketing and Communication uses various means - print, electronic, and face-to-face contact - to advance understanding of Saint Michael's mission of providing education with a social conscience, and producing graduates with the intellectual tools to lead successful, purposeful lives that will contribute to peace and justice in our world.

Media and Public Relations

We're instrumental in bringing greater visibility and recognition to Saint Michael's. Our mission is accomplished through initiating and facilitating relationships and communication with our greater Saint Michael's community, and our constituencies throughout New England, nationally and internationally.

Internal media resources for College news and events are compiled weekly in "Saint Michael's This Week". A campus calendar of weekly events is produced monthly. To submit a Saint Michael's College event that occurs off campus that is open to the public, submit your event to Mark Tarnacki at mtarnacki@smcvt.edu
