The Office of Marketing and Communications provides a wide range of services to the campus community. Communicating effectively with any audience means planning and implementing creative strategies to maximize your message. From publications to advertisements, direct mail to media relations, and brochures our office can assist you in developing a promotional campaign that meets your specific needs. OMC works in partnership with you to produce effective, on-target promotional materials that are designed to reflect the excellence and quality of your academic unit, program or department. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with our Editorial Guidelines. Some of the services our office provides include:
Members of the media often contact the OMC requesting to speak with an expert on a specific subject. If your expertise matches the request, we may contact you to complete the interview. Please be advised that these media interviews often have quick deadlines, but we will do our best to contact you with as much advance notice as possible. If you receive a call from a reporter directly, we would appreciate if you alerted a member of the OMC.
If you need assistance in promoting an event or need marketing materials such as brochures, flyers, advertisements, invitations, or the like, please complete the Marketing Services Request Form. To best service your needs, we request this form be completed six weeks prior to the need. Requests outside of this timeline will be handled on an individual basis; however there is no guarantee that the requested deadlines will be met.
If you are interested in securing give-a-way items to promote IU Northwest or your department, please email email@example.com.
If you have an important campus announcement that relates directly to the academic and administrative activities of IU Northwest, the OMC encourages you to inform the campus by sending a campus announcement via the Announce Listserv. To send an email to faculty/staff, please send it to: [[IUN-ANNOUNCE-L]]. A moderator of the listserv will approve or disapprove your email for distribution. Approval processes may take up to 24 hours; therefore, we advise all email messages be sent to the listserv in advance. If your message is not approved, you will be informed as to the reason it does not meet the listserv communication qualifications. To send an email to students, please send it to: [[IUN-STUDENTS-L]]. The Office of Student Services moderates the student listserv. The faculty and student listservs will soon be replaced by a new all-campus communication tool; details forthcoming.
Printing of designed marketing material
The OMC is not responsible for printing any marketing materials that are designed by our office. All printing must be handled by FedEx Office printing services. Printing by FedEx Office may take several days depending on the project’s specifics, therefore, to ensure your project’s deadlines are met, we advise you to consider the printing time when requesting material to be developed by the OMC. For more details on FedEx Office, please go to: http://www.iun.edu/campus-services/.
