Strategic Communications

Strategic Communications conveys the mission, vision, and accomplishments of the University community through a robust variety of projects and outlets. As the University’s communications center, the Strategic Communications team works to tell The Haven’s story and share its unique advantages through publications, the news media, digital media, and brand development - helping to both shape and advance the University’s image and reputation.

Strategic Communications manages internal and external communications and is the official liaison for news media. As the University’s publications resource, the office produces a variety of printed and digital material, including the University’s alumni publication — The Haven Magazine; a community newsletter - The Haven & You; internal newsletters for faculty, staff, and students; special publications; and collateral material. The team also manages web and electronic publications, multimedia projects, and takes creative lead in the design and content management of the University’s website.

Strategic Communications acts as the liaison between the University and external organizations, business leaders, local and state elected officials, and community non-profits to build strong relationships — thus positioning the University as an important local and regional partner.

Advancing the goals, image, and mission of the University by promoting the University to internal and external constituencies and the public is key to building recognition and attracting a diverse and vibrant student body, maintaining a complement of highly-qualified faculty and staff, and solidifying strong community partnerships.

The office has oversight for the following areas:

  • Media and public relations
  • Community relations
  • Multimedia communication
  • Social media communication
  • Brand development and compliance
  • Internal and external communication
  • Crisis communication
  • University publications

The office is a campus-wide resource that promotes pride, support, and recognition to key constituencies through authentic and compelling narratives. 


Julie Stellfox is the Assistant Director of Strategic Communications at The Haven. Stellfox oversees the Lock Haven campus communications and media relations.
