Eleni Kanellas has particular responsibility for the Newnham College website,  social media and media relations. With her job share partner, Harriet Truscott, she is jointly responsible for internal communications.

Eleni Kanellas works Wednesday to Friday.

Newnham’s Communications Office is about college communications in its broadest sense. Yes, we’re creating engaging alumnae publications, writing a prospectus that attracts great students, running social media, and overseeing the website. However, our role is ultimately to help people within College communicate – with each other and the outside world. That may mean working with students and staff to ensure that routine information and procedures are clear. It may mean working with academics to manage unexpected media attention, or helping you prepare for a major interview about your research.

If the Communications Office can help you, please get in touch: communications@newn.cam.ac.uk.
