University Marketing and Public Relations

A New Name & Upping Our Game!

We do a variety of things, and those include university branding, marketing, communication, public relations, legislative relations, photography, graphic design, and web. We work with units across campus depending on the reach, scope, and deadline of the project. Please use our request form if you would like to work with us on any of the above, and we will get back to you within a day or two.

Tell us about your project

We're also offering a new brand review service to campus. All you need to do is email us your poster, video, website, etc. Include any relevant URL or file attachments. We'll review it and reply with any relevant suggestions to help with compliance and alignment with the university brand policies.
