Laurel Masten Cantor has been promoted to director
of publications in the Office of Communications.
A Princeton staff member since 1982, Cantor has served as director of creative services in the communications office since 1999. As director of publications, she will be responsible for ensuring customer satisfaction and for producing high-quality print and electronic publications. The position was created as a result of an administrative review of the office, which started in 2000.
"While the office received good reviews internally and externally, it was determined that the publications team -- with about four full-time employees -- was performing the work of six and a half full-time employees, and demands were continuing to grow. Also, it was determined that our publications activities needed greater coordination, direction and oversight," said Lauren Robinson-Brown, director of communications.
"With her knowledge of Princeton, her creativity and her wealth of experience in publications, Laurel is prepared to lead our effort to meet these growing needs while improving service delivery," she continued.
The office annually produces about 50 key print publications -- including Admission Information, the Student Guide, the Undergraduate Announcement and the Graduate School Announcement -- another 40 Web publications and some 500 other jobs ranging in complexity from business cards to posters and logos.
Previously, Cantor served as a publications editor and senior publications editor/designer. From 1996 to 1999, she was the art director of the University's 250th anniversary and a project manager in communications. She is active in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, from which she has won numerous national and regional awards for her work.
She earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from Wesleyan University.
