You’ve heard about the new strategic plan at the University of Minnesota, but how do you leverage it in your unit’s communications? How can you share your unit’s stories to show the depth and breadth of the University and contribute to the success of the strategic plan?
Attend this program to learn more about the strategic plan and develop ideas for integrating the plan in unit communications. This presentation and workshop will be led by Matt Sumera, Senior Public Relations Consultant and Director of Student Communications at the University of Minnesota. Attendees will get an overview of the strategic plan, see examples of unit-level communications, and work in groups to develop ideas for integrating the strategic plan and telling compelling stories.
