Margaret Murray, Ph.D. Communications Strategist


Margaret Murray UW

I came to UW in November 2013 to help launch The Whole U. I thought it was my dream job and I was right. In the first year I got to be part of the World’s Largest Kettlebell Class, a campus Scavenger Hunt, Ovations Talent Showcase, and so much more. As the editor of The Whole U’s website, I shine a spotlight on some of the incredible faculty and staff achievements that happen here every day. If you know of a story we should tell, please let me know. I’m also the point person for The Whole U’s FacebookTwitterInstagram accounts so please contact me if you know of an event or resource we should share. I love learning about all the amazing things that are happening around the UW!

I’m a firm believer in the power of public education. I earned my Bachelor’s in Mass Communications from Michigan State University and my Doctorate in Organizational Communication and Cultural Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder. If you ever want to talk about Detroit (my dissertation topic) or play a game of Euchre (my favorite card game) please let me know!
