Office of Marketing and Communications


The Office of Marketing and Communications promotes the mission, vision, and values of the college through integrated marketing and multi-media journalism. We advocate for the college’s three strategic impact areas: equity, context, and transition, as outlined in our goal to Reimagine Education. 

Our work is prioritized to support the marketing goals of the college as set by the dean and director. We also manage the College of Education Website as it serves as the college’s primary marketing and recruiting platform. Faculty and staff are encouraged to submit content updates by completing our project request form. Design, layout, information architecture, photography, videography, and final copy decisions are under the purview of the Marketing and Communications team.


Faculty and staff are asked to please notify Amanda Karr, director of Marketing and Communication, of any media interview requests or op-ed plans. The marketing and communications team will then work closely with you to assist with and amplify the story.

Media and Press Outside the College
