Marketing and Communications

From exhibits about Alaska's biology, culture, and history to groundbreaking arctic research, the museum is the place to go for information about the North. Check back regularly for a look behind-the-scenes at the science and special events going on at the UA Museum of the North.

The museum's communication and marketing department distributes news about events, exhibits, research, and programs produced by the museum. We blog, post, share, and tweet these stories through a variety of social media.

The department gets calls and emails from news outlets around the world and joins journalists with our curators and collection managers. We also help the public connect with our collections, whether they want to know more about an object or need to visit our research labs.

We market the museum, making sure to promote Alaska as a place worth visiting. The department organizes and runs news events, offers media training to faculty and students, provides strategic communication advice and technical assistance, and plays a key role in campus emergency communications.
