The Office of Marketing and Communications promotes the mission, values and ideals of Saint Augustine’s University through contact with external and internal audiences. Brand preservation and promotion is paramount to their day-to-day activities. The Office is responsible for planning, directing and implementing publications, marketing and promoting strategic plans to further the objectives and mission of the University as stated in the University’s Strategic Plan and overall brand management.
The Office of Marketing & Communications has ready-made design templates available for faculty and staff. If your office needs eye-catching brochures, flyers, newsletters, postcards or PowerPoint presentations, you can access editable, appropriately branded layouts for Microsoft Publisher and PowerPoint templates at S:/Marketing and Communications/Templates. If you need assistance, call 919.516.4119.
The following time frames indicate the approximate amount of time needed for various publications. Lead time provides our office with the opportunity to consult with our clients and determine their needs. Variances in the time frame required are based upon the complexity of the job. High-end publications requiring the services of large design and/or print shops will require additional lead time.
