Student Communications

The Department of Student Communications was established in 2014 to implement a unified communication strategy and procedure for internal communication with our Montclair State students. Student Communications collaborates and coordinates with academic and administrative offices to bridge communication gaps, produce effective messaging, establish processes and improve the students’ engagement, connection to support services and community pride.
