College Communications

The Office of College Communications & Marketing serves as the link between Gordon College and the public. The staff works with the media to report timely events about the College, and connects reporters with our faculty members across disciplines who provide expert perspectives on today's many issues and news stories. 

The Office of College Communications & Marketing also publishes the award-winning magazine, Stillpoint, as well as many other publications which include the Gordon College Web site, numerous online resources, Web pages and a variety of materials that reflect our campus life. 

In addition to these priorities, the Office of College Communications & Marketing operates as a professional in-house *agency overseeing marketing and paid advertising for the College, social media communications, brand management, and special event planning for a number of annual gatherings on campus.
