Communications Office

The Communications Office tells Bennington College's story, across media and across platforms, so that the power of a Bennington education has the broadest possible reach. We oversee all aspects of branding and marketing, media relations, internal communications, and leadership communications. We create, curate, and publish content for the College's hallmark publications, including the semi-annual Bennington magazine, the weekly Bulletin and several monthly newsletters, institutional social media channels, and the Bennington College website.
