Unrivaled Expertise

Founded on a desire to have the luxury of falling in love with our clients, TVP Communications brings unrivaled industry expertise and individualized attention to its work with client partners across the higher education landscape.

Whether it’s connecting with new audiences, managing a crisis situation, building thought leadership awareness or communicating what makes your institution or organization unique, the ways in which your audiences are seeking information are constantly changing.

With all of the conflicting messages the general public hears each day, it can be challenging to break through the noise—particularly when dealing with public perceptions of education-related issues.

That’s where we come in. Together we’ll work to identify distinctive narratives and connect with your audiences through traditional and new methods to help you truly stand out from your peers.

Media Relations

As your media outreach partner, we will track current themes in higher education and identify opportunities to provide insight and advance your message, seeking to place expert citations and feature stories around your specific areas of expertise. We are also available as needed to provide your internal team with counsel on media outreach, talking point or press release development and briefings for major announcements, achievements, events and milestones.


Thought Leadership Open/Close Icon

Thought Leadership

Our success in developing effective thought leadership strategies comes from our hands-on approach to client relationships and our desire to understand the exact things that make each client different and special. We will work with you to develop a customized thought leadership strategy that focuses on defining your organization’s “areas of distinction” and also includes a strategy for how to promote those areas to your target audiences.

Announcements and Events

We love good news—who doesn’t? At TVP Communications, we’ve worked with institutions and organizations to plan and execute announcements and events for major gifts, leadership transitions, new programs, name changes and more.

We work with clients to understand the full story behind the announcement and then develop a messaging and communications strategy that identifies all relevant audiences and matches them with appropriate messaging and communication vehicles.
