The Office of Marketing & Communications (MARCOM) supports the creative communication needs of the University through graphic design, videography, photography, website development, social media management, writing, proofing, and printing service coordination. The resources below are available to all staff, faculty, and student leaders for University projects.
All communication and marketing pieces that represent Corban, including postcards, brochures, posters, newsletters, e-newsletters, mass email, and advertising, must meet the University’s branding guidelines and receive approval from MARCOM before being distributed.
Logos & Brand Guidelines
MARCOM manages Corban’s brand guidelines, including logos, colors, fonts, core messages, and writing guidelines.
The detailed guidelines can be found in the Brand Style Guide.
Whenever possible, Corban’s primary University logo should be utilized when a logo is needed. However, there are instances where unique logos and icons for departments, programs, or events may be appropriate. To request a logo, contact MARCOM. To have a new logo created, please submit a Project Request.
EVENT & FUNDRAISING SUPPORT
Planning a Corban event or fundraiser? Submit an Event & Fundraising Support Request to request a registration form and promotion of your event.
MARCOM (and Advancement, as applicable) will work with you to create a registration form and follow-up communication for registrants, promote the event to appropriate audiences, and ensure you have all the elements you need for a successful event or fundraiser.
For the best success in building awareness and participation for your event, please submit this form at least 6 weeks in advance of your event. Marketing support may be more limited for events occurring less than 6 weeks from your request, but please still submit the form. Please note: If this is an on-campus event, a Corban Event Request Form (CERF) must be submitted and approved before requesting marketing support. If specific materials are required for your event (postcards, flyers, etc.), be sure to also submit a Project Request for all graphic design and print needs.
We want to be mindful of our resources. Once you have received approval for printing, you have two options.
ON-CAMPUS SELF-SERVE PRINTING
The printer/copier in the workroom in Schimmel Hall, Room 217, is available for self-serve printing for official University projects.
- Self-serve printing should be limited to projects of 200 copies or less. If you need a larger quantity, please contact MARCOM to coordinate off-campus printing options.
- Request network access to the printer from IT or log into one of the two computers in the workroom with your regular Corban log-in info.
- Standard size paper and cardstock is provided in the Workroom. If you would like to print on specialty papers, please provide your own.
Self-service printing is ideal for:
- Standard size papers:
- 8.5”x11” (letter)
- 8.5”x14” (legal)
- 11”x17” (tabloid)
- 12”x18” (tabloid extra)
- Items with at least a ¼” white border on all sides.
- Items that require no or minimal cropping/trimming. A large paper cutter is available in the Workroom for you to use.
Printing that cannot be completed on campus and needs to go to a vendor should be coordinated through MARCOM with a Project Request. This includes:
- Large quantities of more than 200 pieces
- Unique sizes and pieces that require cropping or folding
- Specialty items, such as business cards, event tickets, stickers, envelopes, letterhead, booklets
MARCOM will place the orders with vendors, coordinate deadlines, and send invoices to the department responsible for the project to authorize payment.
CAMPUS TV SLIDES
The slides displayed on the campus TV monitors are managed by MARCOM.
To have your event or information promoted on these slides, please complete a TV Monitor Request. You may submit your own slide, which is subject to approval by MARCOM, or you may have MARCOM create a slide for you.
Please submit your request at least 2 business days prior to your preferred posting date or 2 weeks prior if you need design services.
Video production and editing is available for key marketing initiatives and University events.
Not all video requests can be approved due to limited resources, and each request will be considered based on purpose, audience, and alignment with University priorities. Please submit a Video Request at least 4 weeks prior to your desired delivery date for video projects.
Corban’s graphic design team creates brochures, billboards, t-shirts, posters, postcards, and digital designs.
We will make sure your project accomplishes your goals while representing Corban’s brand well. To start a design project, please submit a Project Request, including all necessary assets and direction in order for the work to be completed.
Requests must be submitted at least three weeks in advance for new projects and two weeks in advance for updates to existing projects. If your project is urgent, contact MARCOM after submitting your project request and we will do our best to accommodate your needs as other priorities and deadlines allow.
MARCOM provides photography services for marketing projects, University events, and employee portraits.
Submit a Website Update Request for edits to existing web pages as well as the creation of new pages.
In most cases, updates will be made within 48 hours but can take up to seven days. Edits to custom pages that require coding or images may take longer, and our Web Manager will communicate the expected timeline to you. New page requests will be evaluated in light of overall institutional priorities and a projected timeline will be provided to you.
The MARCOM Office manages the University’s primary social media accounts on all channels.
If you have something you would like us to share, please submit a Social Media Post Request. Your request will be reviewed for alignment with University priorities, social media policies, and overall social media strategy and posted at MARCOM’s discretion. Please note that not all requests may be approved.
If you would like to create an account for your department or area, please submit a Secondary Account Request. Note that these accounts are approved on a limited basis and must adhere to Corban’s social media policy.
Mailings of at least 220 identical pieces may use Corban’s postage permit and be sent as a bulk mailing.
MARCOM coordinates the processing of these mailings with a third-party vendor. Please submit a Project Request for assistance with a bulk mailing.
Learn more about what writing services are available at Corban University.
As part of its regular duties, MARCOM discovers and writes news and feature stories about the University and its staff, faculty, and students that promote the brand and mission of the University. These stories may be utilized as appropriate by other University departments. We also welcome leads for great stories! Story leads and requests for news articles, press releases, and marketing copy may be submitted to MARCOM with a Project Request.
MARCOM designs and orders University business cards for all departments.
You may request quantities of 100, 250, 500, or 1,000, and costs will be charged to your department. Supervisors may submit a Business Card Request.
Proofing and Editing
Projects completed by MARCOM will be edited for grammar and alignment with writing and style guidelines.
You may also email MARCOM to request proofing and editing of letters and University communication for external audiences. Please allow two business days for most proofing requests.
