The Hostos Community College Communications Department serves as the primary liaison to local, national and international media outlets. Its mission is to support and promote the College and the accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The Communications Department is responsible for producing and editing written communications, including press releases, newsletters, statements, talking points, opinion pieces, and a variety of college publications. The Department collaborates closely with the President and the Executive Cabinet to document and share information with the community. It plays an integral role in the College’s relationships with community leaders and organizations, local, state and federal political leadership, and key CUNY administrative departments. The Department works closely with these partners to stay current on strategic priorities, issues and policies. The Department manages the College's web news pages; may advise faculty and staff on responding to media interview requests; and helps publicize and promote activities and initiatives that support recruitment, institutional branding, fundraising and marketing.
