About OPAC

The Office of Public Affairs & Communications works in partnership with school and departmental communications and media colleagues to promote the institution and to tell the many stories of Yale. We provide a variety of communications services to faculty and staff and we connect members of the media with our faculty members. We aim to inform and engage various audiences.

Our staff provides expertise in the following areas:
