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.

Our Services

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.

Our greatest asset is our people. Every member of our team brings experience in some facet of higher education, including enrollment, media and communications, access and success, and senior administration.

We’re unapologetic data and policy wonks who prize honesty and transparency above all else. We bring a passion for our industry because we’ve each benefitted from the difference higher education makes in the lives of its students. And because we believe the work is better when you have a good time doing it, we bring a sense of fun to all of our client partnerships.
