The KU Division of Advancement has been renamed the Division of Communications,
Marketing and External Affairs effective immediately. With the recent separation
of fundraising from the division, the name better reflects the unit’s day-to-day
activities. Under the leadership of John Green, associate vice president,
offices in the division include: University Relations (communications, media relations, web content and technology and sports
information), University Marketing, Intercollegiate Athletics, Sports Medicine,
Conference Services, KU Presents!, Video Services, and the Pennsylvania German
Cultural Heritage Center. The KU Foundation continues to be responsible for
development and alumni engagement. You will see the name change reflected in
various publications and media as we move forward.
