Manager of Media Relations at UChicago Urban
As part of the Office of Communications’ Media Relations Department, the Manager of Media Relations of UChicago Urban will provide media relations support across multiple schools, institutes, centers, faculty, researchers, and programs — all dedicated to advancing urban progress, thinking and innovation.
Partnering with civic and community leaders, the units and scholars across UChicago Urban develop evidence-driven, scalable solutions to address the most complex questions facing cities. The Media Relations Manager will support the University’s larger urban portfolio, including, among others, the academic divisions, the professional schools, the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation, UChicago Global, and the Office of Civic Engagement.
The Manager of Media Relations [new role] position was created because there is growing recognition across UChicago that an opportunity exists to more effectively harness and communicate the impact of our diverse, numerous and important urban and community-focused efforts.
