submitted by

I am pleased to announce that Augsburg’s new director of public relations and internal communications, Gita Sitaramiah, begins today, January 15.

As part of the integrated Augsburg-Luther Seminary marketing and communication team, Gita will work with Briana Alamilla, communication and social media specialist (Augsburg), and Katie Langston, associate director of internal communication (Luther), to integrate news, social media, and internal communications planning and execution initiatives for both institutions.

Gita brings extensive journalism and public relations experience to the PR director position — including writing for print, radio, video and social meeting as well as preparing executives and others for media interviews. Gita most recently was communications director at the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging and, prior to that, led public relations and communications at Greater MSP. Previously, Gita was a reporter for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and a number of other metropolitan news outlets. She earned a bachelor’s in English with a French minor from the University of Minnesota and completed a Master of Public Affairs at the Humphrey School.

Please join me in welcoming Gita to Augsburg!
