The goal of the Communications and External Relations Unit at NOSM University is to provide effective internal and external communications services to ensure its corporate profile accurately and positively reflects the University’s guiding principles of high standards in education, research, community engagement, and operation.
Specifically, the unit is responsible for the University’s website content, media relations, and an annual Report to Northern Ontario. The unit also handles long-term strategic communications planning, special events promotion, and internal communications consulting, and implementation of initiatives.
We are always prepared to respond to requests for interviews, background information, and expert commentators. The Unit supports searches for news and information about the organization.
