The Office of Communications and Marketing manages communication between our institution and our audiences and stakeholders. Strategic management of communication helps bring our programs and activities to the forefront in the public’s mind as a credible source of information — one that has answers and can be trusted.

We work with our clients to reach target audiences effectively with marketing and communications planning. We can consult on long-term strategic plans, campaign development, or determination of key messages that succinctly and successfully convey your position. By working with you to define goals and objectives, identify whom you want to reach, locate the best way to communicate with that audience, and determine how to measure success, we can design a series of communications solutions that will help achieve desired outcomes.

We have moved to a new project-request system called WorkZone. After you submit your request, you will receive a link to log into the new system. 

If you have any questions, please contact Lori Greiner for VCE peer- and non-peer publications, and Zeke Barlow for all other requests.
