Spelman College is making local, national and global news! Spelman is one of the most highly respected liberal arts colleges in the United States, well-known for academic achievement in three areas of distinction: prestigious top tier national institutions, historically Black colleges and universities, and women's colleges.

The Office of Communications works collaboratively with the campus community and the media to ensure visibility of our achievements. Our activities range from managing the College's official website and publishing our weekly newsletter, Spelman Connection, to administering social media projects and responding to media requests.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Spelman College is a private academic institution. Members of the media must have prior approval from the Office of Communications before visiting campus. While on campus, the media representative(s) will be accompanied by a staff member from the Office of Communications.
