“Hire Learning: Is a Top Spot in University Communications Right for You?”

By Tom Eppes, APR, Fellow PRSA
Chief Communications Officer, University of Mississippi
Executive Committee, PRSA CHE

Senior university communicators say they are being approached at an increasing rate about a growing number of cabinet-level jobs in higher education. These newly created, elevated positions often report directly to the chancellor/president, and executive search firms are so focused on specific expertise that they’re even considering candidates outside higher education.

The volume of new searches and newly created positions, confirmed by leading search consultants, suggests that a trend is developing in which senior university administrators and their boards of trustees have decided they need public relations and marketing counsel at the top. The positions are variously described as chief communications officer, vice chancellor of communications, vice president of communications or similar titles, most serving in the president’s or chancellor’s “cabinet.” A major new development has been the addition of the word “marketing” to many of these titles.

The PRSA Counselors to Higher Education (CHE) Section is hosting a Google Hangout on Air with university chief executive officers on January 21 at 2 p.m. ET. Other time zones: 1 p.m. CT | 12 p.m. MT | 11 a.m. PT 
 
Once upon a time, higher ed presidents distrusted social media. But no more. Presidents are using social media to amplify their voices and to engage with constituents by sharing their ideas with leading journalists on Twitter, gaining followers among students and parents on Facebook, and posting selfies with influential alumni on Instagram.

Using Dan Zaiontz’s book # Follow The Leader: Lessons in Social Media Success from # HigherEd CEOs as a stepping off point, the conversation will focus on presidents and chief executive officers who are breaking this communications barrier as they continue having considerable social media wins. Join the conversation, ask questions, and discover how you can encourage and support your chief executive’s use of social media to further your school’s mission and goals. 

Panelists will include Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, University of Missouri-Columbia; President Santa J. Ono, University of Cincinnati; President Elizabeth J. Stroble, Webster University; and Professor and Author Dan Zaiontz, Seneca College. PRSA CHE Chair Joseph A. Brennan, APR, vice president for strategic communication at The University of Iowa, will host the event.
