CHSS Distinguished Alumni - Communication

Brittany Sanders

BA Communication '14

Brittany Sanders started as a first-year student in the communication department at George Mason University in 2010. She was a full-time student working multiple jobs on campus, both with Mason Recreation and the office of sponsored programs. In 2014, on the precipice of graduating with her BA in communication, Sanders began a staff position in the communication department as the graduate programs coordinator and has now started her tenth year in the job. Her primary focus is graduate students and working to help make the program and the graduate student experience the best it can be. She loves helping students, beginning with the recruitment phase through building relationships with them as alumni. Sanders enjoys seeing our alumni thrive in their careers after they graduate from Mason. She works closely with faculty in the renewal, promotion, and tenure processes, and the annual review process. Sanders also assists with department purchasing, manages the D.C. Health Communication Conference, and assists with website development and maintenance, as well as content creation for departmental programs, along with many other roles and responsibilities.
