IMPORTANT REMINDERS

Advertising: All University advertising, except for job postings, must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Creative Marketing Solutions (Marketing and Communications) before it is purchased (Procurement Services Policy IV: 06:01). Please contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu before placing advertising in any media, including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, television, radio, outdoor, theater, signage and advertising sponsorships. CMS, along with the Office of Academic Marketing and other elements of our division, 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. The Office of Creative Marketing Solutions (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 Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu. Our Logo Guide can be found here

Pre-publication Review: We’re required by University policy to officially number and keep track of all publications of our institution, 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. We can help you ensure your printed or digital product accurately and properly reflects our University. For more information, contact Kara Hooper at (615) 898-2896 or Kara.Hooper@mtsu.edu
