2016-2017 Faculty Handbook

Marketing and Public Relations

The Marketing and Public Relations Department offers a multitude of services to faculty, staff and administrators looking for innovative ways to promote programs, special events and other news to external and internal audiences.

The department ensures that the website, brochures, advertisements and other materials intended for external audiences have uniformity in language usage and style, as defined in the CF Style and Media Guide, and that college, state and federal requirements are met. Any nonclassroom materials to be printed by Printing and Postal Services or an outside vendor must be approved by Marketing and Public Relations as well as the appropriate dean or vice president.

Advise the Marketing and Public Relations Department immediately if you are contacted by the media for an interview that was not arranged through the department, or in the event of an emergency on campus (after calling 911 and/or the Public Safety Office as needed). ONLY the college president or a designee may serve as college spokesperson for the media.

The department has a limited number of table covers, retractor banners and display boards which may be reserved for special events such as College Preview Nights, etc.
