Dutchess Community College is looking for a PR consultant to support the writing and design services needs of its marketing department and office of the president.

From its main campus in Poughkeepsie and satellite facilities in Fishkill and the Hudson Valley Regional Airport in Wappinger, DCC has an enrollment of 4K students.

In October, DCC made news with the visit of First Lady Jill Biden to tout the new $3M mechatronics lab, which trains students for jobs in advanced manufacturing. The American Rescue Plan Act funded a portion of the facility.

DCC’s RFP calls for creation of press releases, speeches, presentations, along with crisis management consultation.

The selected partner will be located in New York with experience in working with public colleges, and an understanding of local, state and funding opportunities.

Proposals are due Nov. 15. They go to the Empire BidNet System procurement portal.
