About University Relations
Seton Hall University’s Division of University Relations shares the Seton Hall story with diverse internal and external stakeholders through compelling and persuasive communications and events. Both independently and through cross-campus partnerships, the Division works collaboratively to deliver messaging through multiple channels to gain understanding and support for Seton Hall as a major, Catholic university.
