Kent State University School of Communication Studies Hires New Marketing Specialist

Kent State University’s School of Communication Studies announced the hiring of Lindsay Kuntzman as the school’s full-time marketing and public relations communication specialist.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Lindsay to the School of Communication Studies and have her join our professional staff,” Jeffrey T. Child, interim director and associate professor said. “Her marketing background – particularly with her work in alumni relations – will greatly help the school communicate to all of its key audiences and elevate the school’s presence.”

As the school’s specialist, Kuntzman will be responsible for developing the school’s brand, overseeing communications to alumni, donors, current and future students, faculty and the community, managing the school’s website and social media accounts, recruitment efforts and special events.

“The School of Communication Studies is such a strong program, and there is so much untapped potential. This position is such an exciting opportunity,” Kuntzman said. “I can’t wait to help recruit the next generation of communication professionals, publicize the talents of our current students, show off our faculty’s expertise and reconnect with our graduates.”

Prior to joining the School of Communication Studies, Kuntzman worked for the Department of Alumni Relations at Kent State University as the assistant director of marketing. In her role, she led marketing efforts for departmental and university-wide initiatives such as Alumni Awards and Homecoming. She was also responsible for developing strategies to acquire and retain dues-paying alumni association members. Before her employment at Kent State, she worked as the marketing associate for Max-Wellness where she managed the company’s social media, developed internal communications and oversaw creation of the monthly direct mail catalog.

Kuntzman is a two-time Kent State graduate. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a Master of Arts in public relations.
