Telling the Boston College Story

Telling the University's stories is at the heart of what we do. University Communications keeps you up to date on Boston College news and events through its print and digital media platforms including the Boston College Chronicle, BC Update, BC News, and Boston College's primary social media channels.

Our news team of writers, editors, media relations, and social media professionals uses a strategic approach to determining the most effective way to reach University audiences, from students, faculty, and staff to alumni, parents, friends, influencers, external media, and the general public.

Our media relations team conveys University news and information, as well as the expertise and insights of Boston College faculty on issues of the day, to local, national, and international print, broadcast, and online news media.

OUC also responds to external media requests for information, interviews, or campus access, and, through the University Spokesperson, provides the official Boston College response to inquiries where appropriate.

BC Update

Nearly every day, faculty, staff, and administrators find our UPDATE e-newsletter in their inboxes. UPDATE contains selected news items about BC, as well as other news relevant to the field of higher education.
