As Director of Communications, I oversaw a staff of two and was responsible for maintaining the public image of a university with approximately 8,000 students, 1,200 employees and 400 faculty. I was the primary contact for the university with local, state and national press and worked with other members of the marketing team to craft internal and external documents and messaging. I did everything from making faculty experts available for interviews with global news outlets, to promoting events awards and research, to answering frequent public questions.
I also taught State & Local Government, a 200 level course in the Political Science Department. I was in charge of the entire class; developing the curriculum and syllabus, lecturing and grading the students.
