The Office of Media Relations and Publications works with print, electronic, and broadcast media outlets to publicize all aspects of Mary Baldwin College, including newsmakers, programs, initiatives, and events. They also respond to media requests for information, story ideas, and faculty and staff experts.
The team produces the MBC News site, which is updated several times each week, and its email counterparts, The Cupola Now, which is distributed weekly to the entire college community, and Cupola Connect, delivered monthly to alumnae/i and friends of the college. Boldly Baldwin, the Mary Baldwin College magazine, and the annual Academic Catalog are also projects from the media and publications team. Members manage production of departmental newsletters, fundraising and recruiting brochures, and promotional materials for major events.
