While several team members may actively support your project, our marketing specialists are your primary point of contact. They act as your ambassador by helping to understand, identify, and communicate your need(s) to the marketing team. Every area of the university has a marketing specialist assigned to it. That marketing specialist will provide project support from the beginning to the end of every marketing project.

We develop and maintain the university’s identity (sometimes referred to as “brand”) and market the institution to an array of audiences.
