Minding Our Reputation

What reputation are you building for your unit? If a prospective graduate student is considering applying for a program in the college, what impression will she have when she visits your website? Similarly, how will a prospective undergraduate student feel about your departmental program brochure when he receives it from his high school guidance counselor? Does your departmental newsletter make alumni proud and present your unit as a worthwhile investment to a potential donor?  Communication is a vehicle for shaping and defining the reputation you want to have.
