Media Relations

Telling Carleton's Story

Media Relations manages all of Carleton's contacts with the media. We cover everything from a simple press release to complete crisis communications.

Our mission is to:

  1. Convey the key messages and values of Carleton by placing stories in local and national media. 
  2. Make sure people are aware of Carleton, both across the country and in our own community.
  3. Tell powerful stories with a personal touch. Through these stories we deepen our connections with:
    • alumni
    • parents
    • current and prospective students
    • professional colleagues
    • the local community
