Get your project started.
University Marketing and Communications provides a wide range of services, including writing, designing, printing, photography, videography, web content and marketing consultation. If you have a project or need marketing and communications support but are not sure where to start, we are happy to help. Just fill out the appropriate request form below and we will be in touch.
So we can better assist you, please read the below information as it relates to your project before submitting a request.
Projects should be submitted as far in advance as possible, so we can coordinate schedules and production. We are unable to accept all projects, but will review your request and be in touch.
Please note: We require at least five business days' notice for smaller projects, and significantly longer for larger or multicomponent projects. Print projects also need additional time for printing (at least seven business days) and mailing, so please keep this in mind when inputting requested deadlines. UMC cannot guarantee the safe or on-time delivery of any items.
