Hi, I’m Taylor Kasper.

I am a Chicago-based marketing & communications professional with expertise in a variety of different mediums. My job is to identify which medium will work best for your audience and tell your story on that platform in a compelling way.

Assistant Director of Communications
I’m in charge of a variety of external communications initiatives that go out to our alumni base. I have built and implemented our social media strategy, which primarily targets young alumni, to encourage our alumni to stay connected and eventually give back to UIC.  I also write, design and analyze other forms of web and print communications, which are sent with the goal of keeping our alumni engaged with the university; stewarding alumni, donors and friends who have given gifts to the University; and fundraising for University initiatives.

Social Media

Social media isn’t a vessel for pushing out information — it’s a portal to engage your audience in meaningful conversations. I have been the lead social media strategist for multiple institutions and have a passion for creating interactive content that opens the lines of communication between company and client.

Currently, I oversee the UIC Alumni social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn) and have consistently grown our engagement rates through a mixture of active social listening and creative, consistent social media content.
