Division of University & Public Affairs
The Division of University & Public Affairs (U&PA) tells the story of UND. We work with UND schools, colleges, and administrative units to provide creative and strategic communications that support UND's mission.
UND formed a new Nickname Committee to facilitate the selection of a permanent nickname. This is the continuation of the work begun by the Nickname & Logo Process Recommendation Task Force that met during the fall of 2014.
U&PA has two separate, yet integral groups: the Marketing and Communications Group, and the Public Relations Group.
Marketing and Communications Group
We provide strategic marketing and communication services to all academic and administrative units.
Our goal is to achieve the highest level of effectiveness in content, design and customer service, while building the UND brand. This includes online and print publications, social media, video services and more.
Public Relations Group
As the strategic public relations unit for UND, we bring public relations perspectives and strategies into university decision-making and planning, as well as executive communication. Working with the University community, we seek to build public understanding of, and support for, UND.
We provide management of university events; strategic oversight of media relations; crisis communication counsel and support; and we direct, engage in and manage community relations activities.
