Office of University Communications



The mission of the Office of University Communications is to develop means whereby Boston College and its academic and executive units can convey the rich range of the University's animating ideas and strengths in teaching, scholarship, and service.

The Office of University Communications (OUC) offers a wide range of services that support the marketing of Boston College to various external constituencies, including prospective students and parents, prospective graduate students, alumni, and the general public. While OUC focuses on projects that require a combination of original design, writing, and photography, the office also handles projects that may require only one of these services. Specific projects include print and online communications as well as signage, banners, and other types of promotional vehicles.
