 Communications & Marketing

A film student makes notes during production.

The Office of Communications & Marketing has many functions at UNCSA. These include public relations, including communication with the news media and the public; publications, especially for student recruitment; advertising, especially for student recruitment; and photo documentation. The office also supports the Advancement Office in its fund-raising efforts.

The Communications & Marketing staff is always available to assist media representatives as needed. Members of the press are encouraged to call the communications office for assistance with questions, special requests, or contacting administrators and faculty.

We know that media representatives are often on deadline, and we will respond to calls and messages as quickly as possible.

The fax number for the Communications & Marketing office is 336-770-3342.
