Jacquelynn Hongosh


Jacquelynn is the CIT Communications Manager for Oberlin College. She began her career at Oberlin as the Help Desk Manager in 2008. In 2015, she became the Center for Information Technology’s first in-house communications professional. In this role, she is responsible for developing and executing a comprehensive communication plan for the information technology unit on campus which informs and educates the college community about technology topics. Jacquelynn creates repositories of online and printed documentation, newsletters, multimedia, and training material; manages CIT’s social media presence; and serves as CIT’s primary trainer, in which capacity she trains faculty, staff, and students about desktop software, basic web design, Google Apps, iOS, Lynda.com, and other cloud-based services.

For the past three years, Jacquelynn has served as Publications Coordinator for the SIGUCCS Conference. This position is highly involved and has the responsibility for the creation of various print materials associated with the conference, including the print program, at-a-glance schedules, large-scale banners to recognize award winners (Penny Crane, Hall of Fame, and Communications Awards), and the framed certificates for the Communication Awards winners. All of these materials are coordinated with the theme of the conference and demonstrate a design style that is versatile and inventive. Each of the past three years’ programs are unique and showcase Jacquelynn’s many talents in graphic design.

Quotes about Jacquelynn: “Jacquelynn is professional and responsive and works well within tight schedules and deadlines. Much of the material for the print program, a magazine-style publication that is often 40-50 pages in length, is delivered at the last minute and in varying formats. Jacquelynn is able to work within these parameters and deliver an excellent product. The timing is such that much of this work happens during the back-to-school rush, thus making this work all the more remarkable.”
