Communications and Public Affairs

Communications and Public Affairs (CAPA), supports the University's mission and vision with strategic communications that promote and enhance McMaster's reputation, brand and goals.

Formerly the Office of Public Relations (OPR), we are a division of University Advancement.

We oversee the McMaster brand as well as media relations, community relations, government relations, social media, the Daily News, MAC Magazine (formerly the McMaster Times), the weekly McMaster Update, and strategic communications that engage alumni, friends, donors, students, faculty and staff.

Communications and Public Affairs is the first point of contact for media. We coordinate all media releases, including contacting experts on campus.
