Deerfield Communications serves as an internal creative agency, providing consulting, visual design, photography, editorial, and electronic communications support to the Academy. The department manages all of the Academy's publications, direct mail (including email) efforts, public websites, and communications materials such as photography and video. The “Comm Team” is behind Deerfield.edu and The Daily Bulletin, and you'll often find them behind a camera pointed in your direction. They also manage contact with members of the press and perform a number of community relations functions. In short, Communications serves three core functions:

  • Is the primary steward for the Academy’s identity;
  • Gathers and shares news and information about the Academy; (demonstrates Deerfield’s commitment to its mission through communications with constituencies; supports programmatic, enrollment, and Advancement giving goals);
  • Enhances communication clarity and speed, and enables the use of communications technology through: email/newsletters, website (s), and social media.

The Communications Office is located in the Koch Center, Room 211, just across from the ITS Help Desk.
