    The staff writes and promotes press releases for an array of university events and happenings. Staff members follow the Winthrop Style Guide of writing and editing to produce top quality work. Archived releases are also available. In addition, staff members track weekly media coverage of Winthrop mentions in the news.

    Staff members create compelling content for Winthrop's comprehensive social media presence and maintain a listing of departmental and organizational social media accounts.

The archive contains numerous iconic, as well as event-specific, photographs that fulfill a variety of marketing and web-specific needs.
