ANU Communications and Engagement

ANU Communications and Engagement (ACE) is the University's central point for internal and external communication, media relations, the University’s public events program, University Traditions and multimedia communications activities.

The Corporate Communications and Engagement team promotes the activities and operations of the University to external and internal communities. The team manages major University events, including the ANU Commencement Address, State of the University, the ANU Foundation Day, On Campus and Experience ANU newsletters and the Experience ANU website. The team also provides communications support to the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and University Executive, delivers the communications activities relating to the University’s strategic priorities, and is responsible for reputational risk management, in cooperation with the Media and Communications team.

The Media and Communications team (also known as the ANU Media Office) is the newsroom of the University. This team of communications specialists provides our academics with support and training in media engagement including helping to write media releases, place opinion pieces, and preparation for interviews, and support with digital and social media communications. The team works closely with academics to develop news stories and with news organisations to generate media coverage. The team also produces ANU Reporter and manages the ANU Newsroom website and the ANU Experts Guide. The Digital Communications Manager within this team manages the University’s social media accounts.

Our Multimedia team produces engaging and informative content for ANU publications, social media, websites and ANU TV. This work encompasses the full spectrum of multimedia production; live streaming, editorial photography, infographics, podcasting and narrative video production. The team also operates ANU Media Studio which connects our researchers to radio and television audiences around the world.
