Digital Communications

University Communications assists in the management, content and communication of the University of San Diego homepage, News Center, and top-level administrative websites. Our team of writers, editors and social media managers focus on telling the story of USD through various online avenues. In addition, we provide guidance and support to the university community to create relevant web content, as well as help ensure consistent branding and messaging. We work with Information Technology Services (ITS) to make sure integrated online communications are developed throughout the university.

With the ever increasing popularity of the Internet at large, providing updated and accurate information on the USD website is extremely important. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding how you can best use your website to communicate your message.
