SPH Communications is an award-winning team of journalists, multimedia experts, and marketing professionals who are here to help you communicate with the outside world. We manage the SPH brand, the School’s main communications vehicles (SPH Today, SPH This Week, SPH This Month, and SPH This Year), media relations, the SPH website and social media channels (and training), photography, video, and event marketing. We partner with administrative and academic departments across the School to facilitate large- and small-scale projects alike, from multi-part admissions marketing campaigns to the donor recognition publication. We also serve as a bridge to Boston University’s full-service marketing agency, Marketing and Communications.

Whether you need advice on how to get your research out there or training on how to use Twitter, we can help. We can help you align with the SPH and BU brands as well as point you in the right direction for resources both in and outside of  SPH.

To learn more or to discuss an upcoming project, simply email Kara Peterson, executive director of communications, and we can talk.
