The Office of Communications and External Relations (CER) is a multifaceted department responsible for engaging internal and external stakeholders in the mission of Berkeley College, and strengthening the College’s reputation, visibility and recognition as a career-focused educational institution.  The Office disseminates news and content such as media releases, photos, videos, newsletters and social media content acknowledging the accomplishments of Berkeley students, faculty, staff and alumni. A wide range of topics are covered, including student success, teaching and learning innovations and achievements, strategic planning, graduation, career development initiatives, campus events, external sponsorships, involvement in community service projects, and commentary on trending topics.
