The Communications team works in collaboration with University stakeholders to tell Macquarie's stories – enhancing the University’s reputation, increasing research impact, and supporting revenue objectives.

We amplify stories of research discoveries, teaching innovation and institutional achievement via strategic media activities across a broad range of channels, including social media.

We keep Macquarie’s campus community connected and informed through our management of internal communications channels.
