Communication Resources

From sending departmental e-newsletters to helping you create videos for your fundraising campaign, the Alumni Association and Foundation communications team can assist you with your needs of communicating and marketing your department to alumni and friends of Washburn. 

Send an email/e-newsletter - If you have information you want to share about your department, please contact Sarah Towle at to set up the process for sending it out. You will be asked what audiences you want to send it to, format of the message you are sending, and ideal times for the communication to be sent. 

Story idea/Class Note - Do you know of a great alumna/alumnus in your department working on something unique, in an area that is timely with new events, or that has shown extraordinary service and contributions to their field of study? The Alumni Association and Foundation has numerous online and print publications to feature our alumni. Please contact Jeremy Wangler at with your story idea. 

Social Media - Do you want to promote your event to alumni? Please contact Dannie Harris-Cooper at

Communications Calendar - For your reference, we maintain a communications calendar of print pieces or emails sent to alumni. We can help you plan the best time to mail your piece or send your email. Contact Sarah Towle at
