IMPORTANT REMINDERS

Advertising: All University advertising, except for job postings, must be reviewed by the Office of Marketing and Branding before it is purchased (Procurement Services Policy IV: 06:01).

Please contact Doug Williams (doug.williams@mtsu.edu or 494-7800) before placing advertising in any media, including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, television, radio, outdoor, theater and advertising sponsorships. We will work with you to plan advertising strategies and ensure proper value in our media buys. We would like at least four weeks’ notice, but we can speed the review for emergency situations.

Logo Use: We are often asked for MTSU wordmark and logo files. We are happy to work with you to make sure that your project is within University standards and is suitable for your goal.

Pre-Publication Review: We’re required by the Tennessee Board of Regents to officially number and keep track of University publications, but our mission is much more than that. Focusing on students and the academic goals of MTSU, we strive to present the University accurately and favorably to the world. We do this while working to meet the specific creative and visual needs of student groups, faculty, University administrators, and all the departments, schools, and colleges at MTSU.  For more information, contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or 2875 or kshooper@mtsu.edu
