About Us

The Marketing and Communications department is part of the university's Advancement office, located on the third floor of the Owen Center. Our primary role is to promote and manage the university's brand for the purpose of meeting enrollment objectives. We do this through strategic marketing programs and public relations oriented activities. This includes the design and management of our network, public web sites, and official university print communications.

Marketing FAQs

  • Q: Why don't I see my requested web changes yet?

    • Sometimes people don't see our updates (after we've said we've updated something) because their web browser is maintaining a "cached copy" of the old page in memory, so you are still viewing the old page.
    • You will need to quit your browser, restart your computer or empty your browser's cache (usually in the preferences or tools settings options). You can also try a different browser or hold down the shift key and hit enter/refresh to reload the link and force the browser to download all of the page components again, instead of serving the old info. You may have to tell your constituents to do this too, if they've recently been to the page prior to an update. Unfortunately, this is just how the web works.
