Welcome to the Higher Ed Communications Trends website! My name is Katherine Saxon and I’m the coordinator for student communications at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. My job is to communicate important information and news with the university’s 27,000+ students. I also get to communicate with other campus stakeholders (employees, alumni, and potential students) while working on projects with my team and as a member of the university’s social media team.

My hope is that this blog will give you examples and ideas of ways to communicate with the audiences you serve at your institution. I will highlight some of the projects I have had the chance to work on during my time at UT as well as examples from other universities and colleges that I admire.
