Guide to Communications in a University Context

The Guide to Communications in a University Context is dedicated to providing university administrators with an understanding of the university context, its stakeholders, and their particular traditions, culture, roles, and relationships. The intent is to help administrators develop and deliver communications that achieve a positive impact. Members who are new to a management role or new to higher education will find this guide to be of particular value.

As a companion to the Guide, CAUBO has developed Strategies for Communicating in a University Context to provide a series of concrete approaches that help ensure that communications are on message, focused, and clear. Together, these documents prepare administrators to produce successful communications that facilitate positive outcomes.
