Marketing & Communications
The Division of the Marketing & Communications serves as the chief promotion division for the University of North Dakota.
What We Do
By amplifying stories, promoting points of pride and engaging our community in events, we celebrate and support the mission of the university.
University ceremonies and events are the rituals and celebrations in the life of the campus. They are the public means for marking institutional and individual milestones; the gatherings to maximize outreach, public relations opportunities, and institutional marketing; and the forums for helping the University share the culture and accomplishments of the institution. UND events are important components in the University’s efforts to build and maintain positive relationships with internal and external constituencies to generate understanding of and support for the University.
In support of the mission of UND and University’s strategic priorities, the Office of Ceremonies and University Events ensures that institutional ceremonies and high-profile, public, events are created, planned, and carried out in an effective and quality way.
Every campaign or marketing plan has a component in need of graphic design. Although each piece is unique, all designs follow UND brand guidelines, so everyone knows we are "UND."
UND Marketing offers templates for name badges, business cards, stationery, merchandise, letterhead, power point presentations, signage, envelopes, campus digital signage and more.

Professional headshot services are available to University faculty and staff (students and student employees are not eligible).
Once per month, the Photo Studio in Skalicky 110 is open from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. for headshot sessions. There is no cost for headshot photography and no appointment is required. Cleaning and social distancing protocols for COVID-19 have been put in place to ensure staff and faculty safety during their headshot session. Wait times may be a bit longer due to cleaning protocols.
If your department plans to attend as a group of 5 or more, please email marketing@UND.edu in advance, so we can prepare for your arrival. If a very large department needs headshot photos, Marketing & Communications may schedule a special session for your group.

Requests for additional archived photography may be submitted to marketing@UND.edu.
We understand the value of building mutually beneficial relationships between UND and its publics. That's why we dedicate significant resources to tell our stories in the local, state and national media.

Video brings your story to life and is a high-demand medium. Whether you want to inspire, educate or just entertain, we customize each video to meet your needs.
Faculty Video Services
Videos created by Marketing & Communications typically are for general recruitment purposes and are not program specific. Faculty needing video services for class should contact TTaDA.
Marketing & Communications provides various levels of service to campus partners. In addition, we've contracted with a variety of pre-approved vendors that UND departments can hire for additional services.

University-Wide Content Sharing Policy
The Division of Marketing & Communications shares content created by our office equally with all campus colleges, divisions, and departments. This policy allows our Division to use our resources to best serve the campus community and provide high-quality, comprehensive content. Marketing & Communications does not limit content to one area when it could be used to promote the university as a whole.
Everyone benefits from this policy. Sharing content across campus gives areas that don’t have access to content creators, such as photographers, videographers and writers, a range of content to use in their marketing materials and websites. It also enables Marketing & Communications to highlight many majors and programs in university-wide marketing campaigns.
