Interesting stories unfold on our Laurier campuses every day. Professors are making research discoveries, past and present students are finding ways to make a difference in the world and our purple-and-gold athletes are enjoying hard-earned victories.
In Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing, part of our job is to make sure people beyond our campuses hear our stories. That means working with the media to share the Laurier news that will interest their audiences, answering questions for their stories, and linking them with Laurier experts on specific news topics.
