Communications

Serving as the primary liaison to local, national and international media outlets, the mission of the Communications Department at Hostos Community College is to support and promote the College and the accomplishments of students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Communications is responsible for producing and editing written communications including press releases, newsletters, statements, talking points, opinion pieces, and a variety of college publications.

Collaborating closely with the President and the Executive Cabinet, Communications documents and shares information with the community. It plays an integral role in maintaining the College’s relationships with community leaders and organizations, local, state and federal political leadership, and key CUNY administrative departments in an effort to stay current on strategic priorities, issues, and policies.

The Communications 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.
