Communication & Stakeholder Liaison

Due to the fact that the George Campus is some distance from the main campus in Port Elizabeth, it is necessary for the Department to have an office in this region.

The following portfolios are handled by this office which has a full-time staff compliment of two, the Manager and the Marketing & Communications Practitioner.

  • Administration
  • Advertising – both locally and nationally on focused target markets
  • Community Liaison – ongoing relationship building with the local community
  • Functions/events – e.g. graduation, George Open Day, George Campus Principal functions, etc.
  • Fundraising – for specific events at the George Campus
  • Information Office – all enquiries referred to the Marketing & Corporate Relations Office
  • Internal Liaison – with the various departments on campus
  • Media Liaison – both local and nationally
  • Publications – George Campus in-house publications and assisting the Department as a whole with information for official publications
  • School Liaison – within the Southern and Western Cape Province
