University Marketing & Communications serves as a liaison between the members of the campus community and the media, determining the most newsworthy aspects of a campus story, deciding which media may be interested in the story, putting the story into a format that's familiar to and convenient for the media, and getting the story to the appropriate media in a timely fashion.
Paid advertising for the University, whether it's via print media, radio/television broadcasts, or electronic ads, is arranged through University Marketing & Communications. Examples include display ads that publicize an event or promote a campaign, and sponsorships that meet marketing goals. UMC can also provide design services for advertisements.
All publications meant for distribution to external (off-campus) audiences must be channeled through University Marketing & Communications. Examples include brochures, posters, pamphlets, flyers, etc. UMC is available to provide professional-level design and copy-writing services, with close attention to the target audience.
