Higher Ed Highlights #4: Stories for University Communications and Marketing Professionals

Keeping up on higher education and Marcom trends is important for those of us working in university relations roles. I have started saving some of the stories that seem most relevant and/or interesting, archiving them here on marcommunique.com in a new series I call Higher Ed Highlights.

New editions of Higher Ed Highlights will be published as often as time permits. Let me know what you think.
