News & Media Relations

CAHNR's Office of Communications helps the CAHNR community share research, teaching, and extension outreach news. We produce a wide variety of stories that are distributed across our channels, including UConn Today and social media platforms. We work closely with University Communications to share news releases and facilitate interviews with the media.

Branding, Marketing, & Creative

The Office of Communications oversees CAHNR's visual identity guidelines, messaging platform, and manages the College's brand. We help to ensure that materials created by our team and by administrative and academic units, faculty, and staff, follow CAHNR's brand guidelines. We produce materials that elevate the College and support the Strategic Vision areas. We can also meet with you one-on-one to ensure your projects are in compliance with College/University brand standards, communications best practices, and are ADA compliant. We can also provide strategies for the most successful deliverables and connect you with freelancers/vendors for creative support.
