Apply to be a part of CLAgency! We want your perspective.

CLAgency is a student-run communications agency that is an integral part of the communications team of the College of Liberal Arts’ (CLA) Office of Institutional Advancement (OIA). Content creators are assigned to one or more departments in CLA. They provide communications services for their department, including writing feature stories for the department’s website, e-newsletter, and social media.

We are looking for people who are interested in interviewing students, faculty, and alumni and writing great stories that create a sense of pride, affection, and responsibility toward the liberal arts. As part of CLA's internal communications agency, students will gain knowledge of how an agency operates; learn about communications, marketing, and public relations through weekly professional development sessions; and meet and network with professionals in the Twin Cities.

We are looking for content creators to work with the following departments, starting spring 2019:

  • Spanish & Portuguese Studies
  • African American & African Studies
  • History
  • Writing Studies 
  • Anthropology
  • Linguistics 

You do not have to major in the department to write for them, nor do you have to be a journalism, English, or communications student to work for CLAgency, though an interest in your assigned department is preferred.
