Division of University & Public Affairs
The Division of University & Public Affairs (U&PA) is the strategic communication arm of the University of North Dakota. We work with UND schools, colleges, and administrative units to provide creative and strategic communications that support UND's mission. Working with the University community, U&PA seeks to build public understanding of, and support for, UND.
As the strategic public relations unit for UND, we bring public relations perspectives and strategies into university decision-making and planning.
We provide strategic oversight of media relations and production of mission-critical messages through news releases and video; executive, administrative and crisis communication and support; and engage in and manage community relations activities.
Ceremonies & University Events
As proactive planning partners, we work closely with the UND president, other administrators, faculty members, staff and students to create and plan a variety of major ceremonies and university events. Events range from Commencement ceremonies to the annual Bus Tour for New Faculty and Administrators to a variety of building groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies.
We help bring people together to tell UND’s story!
