University Communications welcomes new staff members

BethandMegan_lowresAs part of the Marshall 20/20 effort, the consolidation of communications and marketing functions across campus is continuing.

Effective Nov. 1, the Office of University Communications welcomed Beth Caruthers and Megan Archer as university communications specialists. Caruthers previously worked in the College of Arts and Media, and Archer was in the College of Health Professions.

The changes follow the consolidation of Printing Services into the office in July.

Ginny Painter, senior vice president for communications and marketing, said, “We are excited for Beth and Megan to join our office. They are two extremely talented communications professionals and I look forward to the contributions they will make to our efforts as we move toward an integrated marketing structure that can serve the entire university.”

In addition, the Office of University Communications is kicking off a system of “beat” assignments for its staff, in order to give colleges and other departments a single point of contact for all their communications and marketing needs.

“We believe this will be a great convenience for the entire university community and will make our operation more effective and efficient,” added Painter.

She said university communications staff members will be contacting the departments assigned to them soon, as early as this week.
