Align & Define: Developing a strategic communications plan for higher ed

with Lori Doyle

Workshop overview:

Today’s college deans and university presidents expect their senior communications leader to develop a plan that supports the institution’s strategic plan. This workshop – designed specifically for senior-level communications pros in higher ed – will give you step-by-step advice on how to develop a plan from start to finish. Led by Lori Doyle, senior vice president for communications at Drexel University, you’ll leave this session with several sample plans and a framework for creating a plan for your institution.

Doyle has presented this workshop numerous times for PRSA’s Counselor’s to Higher Education network and other higher education groups, and is now making it available to higher education communication leaders in the Philadelphia region.

If you lead the communications office for a college or a university – or aspire to – this workshop will provide hands-on training on how best to develop a plan and be well-poised for future success.
