Telling the Graduate Center's Story

The Office of Communications and Marketing (C&M) provides expert guidance and support to raise the Graduate Center’s visibility as a leader in graduate education and an incubator of research that enhances the public good.

Through digital and print media, we capture the stories that distinguish the Graduate Center and convey its impact on individual lives, on our home city of New York, and throughout the world. Our work enhances the ties between the Graduate Center and its primary audiences, including prospective students, peer faculty and institutions, alumni, donors, policymakers, and the media.
