Marketing and Communications works to promote MTSU's mission, goals and good works in a manner that's clear, consistent and compelling.
All University advertising, except for job postings, must be reviewed by Creative and Visual Services before it is purchased (Procurement Services Policy IV: 06:01). Please contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or x2875 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu 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.
Creating a Publication
We approach each request for a publication or graphic as an opportunity to present MTSU in the most effective and meaningful way possible. Our services include writing and editing; design; and working with printers and other vendors. On-campus Printing Services offers black-and-white copying to multicolor offset printing as well as various styles of finishing and binding. For larger or special projects, we work with respected off-campus printers and vendors to deliver excellent and economical results. For more information, please contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu
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. The Office of Creative and Visual Services (Marketing and Communications) must review and approve all commercial use of the university’s wordmark and logos. For more information, contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or x2875 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu. Our Logo Guide can be found here.
News Releases and Media Contacts
We can be an active consultant in your planning, either in person or through your communication liaison committee member. We'll be part of your "think tank." With good information, given to us well in advance, we will suggest various ways to publicize your event or news, free of charge. Scheduling of many of our options requires advanced notice (six to eight weeks). For more information, call Jimmy Hart at (615) 898-2919 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requesting a Photograph
Our photographers are available to shoot on location or create specialized images in our studios. We also shoot official university studio portraits. And we fulfill service orders for images or prints, such as University stock images for publications, Web and other media; custom digital image editing or corrections; image scanning; and custom photo printing, including large-format requests. Call (615) 898-2875 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
All University units are required by the Tennessee Board of Regents to officially number and keep track of all University materials that are available to the public. 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 x2875 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu.
