The Communications Office functions like an internal communications and marketing agency for various departments and offices on campus. We can assist you with everything from graphic design projects to photography! Our goal is not to stifle your creativity, but to work with you to ensure that your projects follow the University’s brand standards. These standards help us present a cohesive image to all of our stakeholders.
All campus units and student groups should obtain prior approval from the Communications Office to use the University’s name, marks, logos, seals or symbols for any commercial or noncommercial use. The University requires all groups, departments and individuals to obtain approval from the Communications Office before producing any products or publications that utilize the University’s name, marks, logos, seals or symbols, regardless of use or method of distribution. Individuals and organizations outside the University who wish to use any of the official marks must first obtain permission by contacting the Communications Office.
The Communications Office will prioritize project requests that have the greatest impact on the University’s recruitment, support and brand. Please know that we are a small team and will do our best to complete all projects in a timely manner.
Due to the volume of requests we receive and the time needed for the creative process, we maintain a minimum of two weeks’ lead time in completing projects. Response time will vary based on our workload and the details of your project. For example, a text update to a webpage is likely to be completed quickly; a request for a newly designed print piece could take several weeks or months. Once you submit your project request, the Communications Office will work with you to establish a mutually beneficial timeline.
Unfortunately, the Communications Office cannot provide design services to student groups or external organizations. Faculty and staff should click here to submit a ticket.
