UNM President Louis Caldera has approved the integration of three UNM communication departments into the newly named University Communication and Marketing, under the leadership of Anne Monson, Associate Vice President for Communication and Marketing. The integration plan, which was overseen by Vice President for Advancement Mike Carroll and interim Executive Vice President for Health Sciences Paul Roth, includes the departments of Public Affairs and Strategic Communications/Marketing (main campus) and HSC Public Affairs.

"With this newly integrated model, UCAM will be better equipped to provide the university with a proactive, targeted, consistent and effective communication and marketing program," says Monson. She adds that the department will continue to work collaboratively with marketing, public affairs and development staff who work for individual schools, branches and programs to help ensure consistency and continuity of the university's look and message to various audiences.

University Communication and Marketing is in the Advancement Division reporting to Vice President Carroll. Susan McKinsey is the Communication Director with a primary focus on the main campus. Sam Giammo is the Communication Director with a primary focus on the Health Sciences Center . Cinnamon Blair is the Marketing Manager serving the university, which includes HSC.
