The communications team creates the public face of the College. Contact with the media, College publications, advertisements, event posters, and the College's web presence shape the way the rest of the world sees Grinnell. The communications team consists of three sub-teams:
- Media Relations
- The media relations team acts as a direct liaison between Grinnell College and both print and broadcast media.Staff issue news releases, communicate Grinnell news and information to media outlets, and facilitate student/faculty interaction with the press. Contact media relations to publicize an event on- or off-campus, or inquire about a Grinnell-related news item.
- Most print and online communications for the College go through the publications team. Major responsibilities include The Grinnell Magazine, g-mail, and Sportsletter, as well as keeping campus and area maps current. Staff frequently answer questions about publications, accept story suggestions, and help students design posters or publicize events.
- The web team crafts and maintains the College's web presence. The Grinnell website, its Front Door and articles, web design, maintenance, and troubleshooting all prosper under the watchful care of the web team. Contact web staff to start a site, answer questions about a current site or web standards, and other web needs.
