About the Marketing Section

We provide professional support and expertise in the areas of photography, videography, audio work, social media marketing, and print and online marketing. Our goal is to support the college mission through the creation of effective publications and products that reflect the college's commitment to excellence for the administration, faculty and specialists.

Our priorities include publications and products for alumni relations, Extension, research and the college administration. In addition, staff members work with others in AgCom to create a wide variety of college promotional materials.

We offer a variety of print templates to further the college's visual identity. Additional resources are available through the Marketing Resources site and include extension templates, the College identity standards (logos, stationery, etc.) and marketing tips. We assist with university/college graphic standard compliance and work with the College Marketing Committee to develop marketing tools, templates and policies.

The Social Media Marketing section monitors and grows the college’s social media accounts, maintains public interaction via social media, and creates digital materials intended for college-wide marketing efforts. Consultations and requests for campaigns or graphics can be made here.

Services Offered


Marketing Design creates printed and digital materials to support the college’s marketing efforts, including banners, flyers, brochures, advertisements and more. Sometimes, we can’t produce materials in-house, (specialty items like pocket folders, heavy scoring for folds) so we use a UK-approved printing vendor. Final proofs will be sent to clients before printing.
