Jane-Stewart (J.S.) Engebretson
Director of Strategic Communications

About Me:
  • B.A. in Mass Communications - Buena Vista University, Storm Lake, Iowa
  • M.A. in Journalism (Advertising Emphasis) - University of Nebraska-Lincoln

As director of the Engineering Communications office, my role is to facilitate and implement brand and image development strategies for the college, its departments and programs.

I have more than 30 years of experience as a journalist, newspaper editor (plus a stint as an Arthur Murray dance instructor) and a public relations and marketing professional. I taught undergraduate courses as an adjunct instructor for more than 15 years in business writing and business communications. I have centered my career around higher education, because colleges and universities truly are a magical place where we can help change lives through education, research and other innovations. 

My responsibilities and expertise include:

  • Overall communication and marketing strategies, especially pertaining to reputation and growth of the college
  • Brand development
  • Business communications and persuasive writing
  • Publications/print materials for internal and external audiences
  • Web development and content
  • Media relations
  • Event planning and implementation
  • Special projects
