Communications Advisory Group

Effective communications are fundamental to Williams’ health and identity. The Communications Advisory Group (CAG), led by the Williams Office of Communications, strives to continually improve Williams’ standards for such work in its many forms.

The members are staff whose formal responsibilities include communicating with campus or external audiences, or are closely tied to such efforts. We use the group as a forum for sharing ideas, information and expertise; discussing emerging opportunities and challenges; and fostering best practices in Williams communications.

Questions or comments about CAG’s work can be directed to the committee chair, Chief Communications Officer Jim Reische.

Sample CAG topics

  • Crisis communications training and enhancements
  • Improvements to Daily Messages and the college event calendars
  • Promoting HR/Benefits initiatives and opportunities
  • Sustainability programs and communications
  • Arts@Williams
  • College marketing and institutional identity standards
  • Teach It Forward campaign communications and updates
  • Presidential induction planning
