Public Affairs

The Office of Public Affairs is the external relations/public affairs unit of the Yosemite Community College District's Chancellor's Office.  The primary goal of the Office of Public Affairs is to enhance communications and relationships of the Yosemite Community College District with the campus community, media, business and industry, all levels of government, the general community and other higher education institutions.  Our success lies in our ability to effectively communicate awareness and understanding of District accomplishments, objectives and decisions, such that the District and its colleges garner profitable community partnerships today and for years to come.

Public Affairs' duties are vast and varied, but can be categorized in the following broad set of areas: Communications, District Operations, Media Relations, Legislative Relations, Community Relations/Marketing, Bond Measure E, Activity/Event Planning, and Special Projects.
