Comm.UNITY to present at SU Government Relations symposium
On Friday, Dec. 3, the Syracuse University Office of Government and Community Relations will hold its annual symposium for about 20 local government officials and their staffs. SU’s student-run organization comm.UNITY will present about its communications work with nonprofit organizations in the Syracuse community. Megan McMonagle, executive director; Jackie Piccolo, director of community relations; and Megan Hess, director of administration, will speak on behalf of comm.UNITY highlighting a few recent campaigns.
This event allows for local elected officials, such as city councilors and state senators, assembly members and staff, to understand the lesser-known happenings at SU. Friday’s event will take place at the Kappa Kappa Gamma house at 743 Comstock Ave. and will focus on “Student Affairs: Students in the Community.”
The Government Relations Symposium will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will feature SU’s LGBT Resource Center, First Year and Transfer Programs, Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs and others in addition to comm.UNITY. For questions about comm.UNITY or the symposium, contact McMonagle at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Organizations that partner with comm.UNITY work with a group of dedicated, motivated students who will empower the organization by developing communications solutions and providing them with the knowledge necessary to continue these plans.
