Public Relations & Communications

Welcome to the Office of Public Relations & Communications

The Office of Public Relations & Communications (OPRC) is responsible for the development, implementation and evaluation of strategic public relations and communications for DePaul University with an emphasis on proactive approaches. We are committed to providing leadership in effectively telling the DePaul story through exemplary communications that convey coordinated and consistent messaging for both internal and external audiences.

We strive to create stronger campus communications through collaboration, recognizing that our diverse array of skills, perspectives and experiences make us better when we work together. In doing this, we collaborate and work in partnership with the Office of the President, the university’s colleges, schools and centers, Student Affairs, Enrollment Marketing and Management, Public Safety, Facility Operations and a wide range of other academic and administrative units. We work with these groups to share the university’s key messages and stories with our constituents around the world and offer advice and direction to ensure consistency in our communication. We actively support programs designed to advance DePaul’s institutional goals as outlined in the campus strategic plan.

The department comprises the full complement of communication areas, including public relations, issues management and crisis communications, media relations, social media, internal faculty/staff communications, executive communications and visual services (photography and video production).
