Central Communications

The Central Communications team provides a range of communication services and skills to the university including media relations, community engagement, internal communications, publications, and crisis communications / issues management.

Central Communications can provide advice and assistance in communicating to both the Toronto Metropolitan University community and outside of campus to the public and media when the need arises.

Media Relations

The Media Relations team builds profile and enhances the reputation of Toronto Metropolitan University by encouraging media coverage of the successes and achievements of the university community. The team engages print, broadcast, online and other digital media to help tell the Toronto Metropolitan University story to potential students, the public, government and other stakeholders. The goal is to increase awareness of and support for the university.

Media Relations sources stories within the Toronto Metropolitan University community – about students, faculty, alumni and staff – and works to engage media interest in telling those stories through print, broadcast and digital outlets. The team also promotes university initiatives, including academic and capital developments, senior appointments, major awards and other stories to ensure that stakeholders are fully informed of key institutional developments.

The team makes a strong effort to promote faculty as expert commentators in the media by continually scanning media coverage for opportunities to have Toronto Metropolitan University faculty speak publicly about matters of public interest and concern. As a result, Toronto Metropolitan University faculty frequently appear in local, national and international media with their expert opinions and analysis.

The team provides a daily email news clipping report to senior staff at the university.
