The Office of Internal Communications helps all employees to know that they are an integral part of an amazing place to work. The goal of internal communications is to engage employees so that they better understand the direction of the University in the context of its mission; that their work is valued; that their needs and concerns are heard and shared; and that the campus is a lively and vibrant place to work.

The Office of Internal Communications works closely with many offices on campus to disseminate timely and relevant information among all Notre Dame employees.

The office oversees the following communications vehicles for disseminating information to the campus community about services and initiatives that affect work life at Notre Dame.
