Strategic Communications

The Office of Strategic Communications conveys the mission, vision, and accomplishments of the Lock Haven University community through a robust variety of projects and outlets. As the University’s communications center, the office works to tell The Haven’s story and share its unique advantages through publications, the news media, digital media, and brand development—helping to both shape and advance the University’s image and reputation.

 The office manages internal and external communications and is the official liaison for news media. As the University’s publications resource, the office produces a variety of printed material, including the University’s alumni publication—The Haven Magazine, the LHU newsletter, special publications, and collateral material.

Advancing the goals, image, and mission of the University by promoting the University to internal and external constituencies and the public is key to building recognition and attracting a diverse and vibrant student body, maintaining a complement of highly-qualified faculty and staff, and solidifying strong community partnerships.
