Marketing & Communications Request Form
In order to better assist faculty and staff, the Shenandoah University Office of Marketing and Communications has a Project Request Form to facilitate discussions about your needs. The form gathers important details to discuss so that we can determine whether we are able to work on the request at the time it is submitted. All requests and projects are considered in the context of university priorities, timing, and capacity. Please note that we are no longer accepting project requests through email.
Once the form is submitted, you will receive a confirmation and then be contacted by the director of marketing operations. Please submit your project request at least two weeks in advance of the deadline or event. Some projects may require additional planning and our team will work with you on a timeline for completion. In some cases, OMC will recommend an outside vendor to fulfill the request.
Requests can include
- website or email;
- design (print or digital, ad, logo);
- social media (post or advertising);
- news or written communication;
- general marketing consultation and more.
OMC holds regular meetings with all of the schools, as well as athletics and marching band, which each have their own marketing liaisons.
