Apply by the 15th to be on the brand new Office of Communications!

Anyone not in the Union but want a say in the Union?

The Student Union is excited to announce the addition of an Office of Communications to our structure in order to forward our mission of staying connected and being an active resource to students.

We want to create transparency, innovate new mediums of communication, and inform students on all the different ways they can get involved at Brandeis. That’s why we’ve revamped our Student Union website to include blogs, as well as a better presentation for events, announcements, directory and academic information. You can also ‘Like’ the Brandeis Student Union page on Facebook and/or follow ‘BDeisUnion’ on Twitter for frequent updates. When you’re grabbing dinner at Usdan, you’ll also be able to check out our Student Union Bulletin Board, which we also plan to use as a space for clubs to advertise events and announcements. Last, but definitely not least, you can look out for a monthly Student Union Newsletter, which we are in the process of creating in time for the holidays.

This is a huge undertaking for communications alone, and we can’t do it without your help!

The Office of Communications will consist of the Student Union Co-Directors of Communication, (2) writers, a newsletter editor, and a website administrator. Writers will be responsible for writing weekly blogs, updating our social networking outlets, and writing stories for the Union newsletter. The newsletter editor will be responsible for assisting in the creation of the Student Union newsletter and managing all the content that goes into it. If you like journalism, these positions may be for you! We need dedicated writers who are willing to devote time to pen stories highlighting all the exciting things that are going on on campus. We also need a tech-savvy website administrator to maintain the Union website and innovate new ways to make it bigger, better, and more useful. Applicants should be creative, familiar with Drupal (preferably), and be able to troubleshoot, as well as add new features to the website.

We hope you will consider this fantastic new opportunity to be a part of the Student Union. To apply, please fill out the application here:
