Communications and Marketing Division (KOM)

The Communications and Marketing Division develops and coordinates internal and external communications and the marketing of Linköping University.

Communication at LiU is characterised by openness, credibility and innovation. The university operates in a world in which competition for attractive students, skilled co-workers and research funding is ever-increasing. In order to reach our strategic goals, fulfil our commission, and bring to reality our vision of a university with the courage to think freely and innovate, the Communications and Marketing Division works to reinforce the university’s position as innovator, and to strengthen the image of LiU as a university that never stands still, deeply engaged with the society around us.

Organisation and tasks

The division works at both strategic and operative levels. We are to contribute to student recruitment; create long-term relationships; spread knowledge of our research, education and collaboration; attract excellent co-workers; create internal and external pride; nurture, reinforce and develop the university’s brand; and provide professional support in communication and marketing.

The Communications and Marketing Division unites all who work with communication and marketing at Linköping University. We work both centrally and in a dispersed manner throughout the university. The division has six units.
