The Rackham Communications team works to increase the school’s visibility and reputation on campus, across the country, and around the world. We do so by highlighting the ways our students’ research makes a difference for the public good and by helping them find the support they need from Rackham and campus partners so that they can thrive in their teaching and scholarship; by helping to recruit students and staff who will enhance our community; by fostering engagement with Rackham’s thousands of alumni across the globe; and by partnering with colleagues to advance the school’s mission of being a national leader in graduate education.
