The Office of Marketing & Communications supports the university through media outreach, print/online publications, and social media and assists with both internal and external communication efforts. If you need assistance with a communications-related project, we offer concept development, copywriting and editing, graphic design for print and web, and photography and videography (contingent on availability of resources). Please contact the Office with requests.
