The Work

Extra Arms and Legs for Spiders

The University of Richmond is one of the nation’s top liberal arts colleges and regularly ranks as a best value. The University’s agency of record since 2009, one of the primary and ongoing objectives has been to raise the national profile of the institution. That can come in the form of inserting professors as subject matter experts on national news stories, highlighting unique qualities of the University or working with faculty and leadership on opinion pieces. Our role has been to work hand in hand and as an extension of the University’s communications office as even Spiders sometimes can use an extra set of arms and legs.

Whether it be breaking news stories on the Federal Reserve or international conflict, University of Richmond faculty can be see commenting to outlets like The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Politico and CNN.com. University trends have been featured in U.S. News & College Report’s annual college guide, Wall Street Journal and The Chronicle of Higher Education to name a few. We’ve even assisted with an interview from space, which appeared during ESPN’s SportsCenter. According to the Global Language Monitor, which releases the Top 400 U.S. College and University Brands annually, Richmond was “last year’s No. 1 brand [college division]; now a fixture in Top Three.”
