COMMUNICATIONS & OUTREACH The Communications & Outreach (C&O) Department plays an important role in the branding of NYP. It helps build strong camaraderie and a sense of belonging among the NYP community by communicating important messages through various media platforms to key stakeholders. These range from publications, posters, websites and media stories, to promotional materials on NYP courses and campus life. STAYING IN TOUCH THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA C&O offers you various social media platforms for you and your friends to keep in touch with NYP through the official NYP Facebook page, our Twitter account and NYP’s Instagram profile. In addition, our blog has articles written by NYP students. You can access all of this through myNYP Portal. THE COMMUNICATORS We also have a CCA group called The Communicators. Here, students not only help handle the polytechnic’s social media channels and blogs, they will also be the polytechnic’s ambassadors to secondary schools. The Communicators will be called upon to provide advice to secondary school students on their choices and course options. The Communicators will also get training in public-speaking skills, event management and leadership. Join us to help showcase NYP’s courses, as well as the fun and exciting elements of student life, all while earning CCA points. COME AND CONTRIBUTE C&O is constantly looking for students - like you - to be involved in our events and activities. Write to us at NYP_Comms@nyp.edu.sg to be part of C&O’s activities. We would love to hear from you! STUDENT DEVELOPMENT The Student Development department functions as a liaison body between the many NYP student organisations and the Polytechnic Management.
