Office of Communications

Hamline's newsroom team

At Hamline, we prepare students to be bold in pursuit of their goals and aspirations to lead the next generation. As Minnesota’s first university, we are deeply rooted in the liberal arts and its value in all areas of business, entrepreneurship, justice, government, arts, sciences and humanities.

Hamline’s news team within the communications office partners with the campus community including faculty, staff, alumni, and students along with media, community leaders, and influencers locally and nationally to tell the powerful stories of how Hamline University is taking the lead.
