News & Editorial

The University Communications Editorial Services team includes professionals who boast a range of experience and work in partnership with our graphic design, web, social, photography and video professionals to create consistent, effective and integrated messaging.

Editorial Services will work directly with campus departments - academic and professional - to tell the St. Lawrence University story, promote the intellectual richness of the academic community, and highlight student achievements while adhering to university brand standards. While content is often generated within University Communications, our small Editorial Services team regretfully cannot take on all projects.
