The Office of Strategic Communication supports the University of Iowa mission by using communication to build awareness and appreciation for the university’s people and programs. We provide counsel and produce content that advances the priorities of the university, connects with people emotionally and intellectually, and compels them to act on our behalf.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The mission of the Office of Strategic Communication is to share the University of Iowa’s story with the world. Many distinct perspectives and cultures have shaped–and continue to shape–that story. The principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion are more than core to our values as individuals. They’re essential to our work. We commit ourselves to these principles so that we, as an office, can help our community more faithfully celebrate, support, and represent the varied voices that make up the University of Iowa.
