UNH associate vice president (AVP) and chief communications officer Joel Seligman has been named the new AVP for marketing and communications at the University of Maryland (UMD).
At UMD, Seligman will guide the vision and execution of major external outreach efforts and marketing campaigns, advise university leadership on national positioning opportunities and collaborate with the university's schools and colleges, fundraising division, athletics and other university programs.
"We are pleased to welcome Dr. Seligman to the University of Maryland and look forward to the leadership and creativity he will bring to this role," says Barbara Quinn, acting vice president of university relations. "He will be an asset in steering our brand forward and highlighting UMD's outstanding service to the state and innovative research as an academic leader."
Since coming to UNH in 2013, Seligman has spearheaded the launch of the university’s new brand identity, two new publications and a redesign of UNH’s signature magazine. He also led efforts to enhance UNH’s digital and social media programs while playing a key role in working with academic units across campus to better align campus-wide communications.
Seligman will assume his new position at UMD in August.
