DailyNews, the University’s e-newsletter, has a new editor-in-chief. Hana Arafat will head the publication effective today, April 13.
She has 10 years’ experience in marketing in increasingly responsible roles managing internal and external communications. In her most recent position, Arafat managed the website, social media, brand and media presence of the British Council in Jordan, a cultural and educational organization.
“We are excited to welcome someone with Hana’s breadth of experience to this job,” said John Coleman, executive director of the Department of Public Affairs and Communications. “We are sure the campus community will enjoy working with her to promote the wonderful stories of our students, faculty and alumni.”
Arafat replaces Kevin Johnson, who has begun a temporary assignment as the University’s social media coordinator. She said she is looking forward to meeting colleagues across the University in the course of her duties as team leader for web communications. She invites staff, faculty and students to send her story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
