Marketing and Communications

Need assistance in planning your marketing/communications project?

The Mandel School's Marketing and Communications Resources page serves as a toolkit to offer guidance and sample materials for faculty and staff looking to share information and connect with wider audiences, including internal audiences (faculty, staff, students) and external audiences (prospective students, alumni, donors). This toolkit supplements content from the University Marketing and Communications website.

For assistance in planning your marketing or communications project, please fill out the project request form.

    Media Relations

    In mass communication, media are the communication outlets or tools used to store and deliver information or data. The term refers to components of the mass media communications industry, such as print media, publishing, the news media, photography, cinema, broadcasting (radio and television), digital media and advertising.

    We work closely with the university’s media relations team to promote our news through print, broadcast and online media outlets. We help our media relations team identify compelling news and research stories, connect reporters with faculty experts, and help members of the media access photos and press releases.

    Please contact Colin McEwen, senior media relations specialist at UMC, and copy Melanie Klass, internal communications manager at the Mandel School, if:

    • You have been contacted by a member of the media to serve as a source for a story
    • You have a story idea you think news media would be interested in covering
    • You have an achievement (research, scholarship, creative endeavor, career) you think the university should publicize
    • Your students have an achievement you think the university should publicize

    Learn more about Media Relations.

    Poster Printing

    FedEx Office is now the only place on campus that can print posters. The standard poster size is 56” x 42”. This Mandel School poster template is correctly sized and contains the appropriate logo and placement. If your poster must meet other requirements, please incorporate the same logo and placement, and avoid large, solid blocks of dark colors - these tend to print darker than shown on-screen and can easily smudge after printing.

    See the Research Posters page for more information on poster printing.
