The Office of College Relations supports and promotes the mission of Smith College by actively building and maintaining strong, long-term relationships with the college’s various constituents. Through strategic print and digital communications, event management and program development, we seek to foster a better understanding of and support for the priorities of Smith in communities including prospective students and alumnae, as well as local, regional and national government representatives and media outlets.

Our Materials

From maintaining Smith’s website and social media accounts to publishing the Commencement program, the Office of College Relations is responsible for most of the outward-facing content put forth by the college. Our team of content specialists, editors, designers, and writers strive to make Smith’s brand and voice consistent across platforms.


The Office of College Relations communicates the mission, values, image and news of Smith College through print publications, admission marketing materials, digital communications, videos, social media, websites and outreach to the media.
