Public Affairs and Communications (PubCom)

Roy Kaufmann

Director of Public Relations

With a background in media relations, media strategy, public affairs, and speechwriting, Roy is an award-winning communications practitioner with 15 years in the PR trenches – from PR agencies to the political campaigns to the halls of government.

A lifelong fan and student of comedy and improvisation, Roy studied at the Second City Theater training school in Los Angeles, one of his favorite academic experiences. When not ‘Yes And’-ing, Roy gets to apply his insatiable curiosity to his work at Lewis & Clark, always searching out interesting stories and people (both of which are in abundance on Palatine Hill).

Roy hold a master’s degree in international relations from the University of San Diego and a bachelor’s degree in international relations from the University of California, Davis.
