The College of Liberal Arts Marketing and Communications team is comprised of professional staff who work to support and promote the great work happening across the college. We manage the college’s public-facing communications, including print, digital and social media channels.
Note: MarComm does not usually assist with internal school faculty/student meetings. Our event manager is happy to consult with and advise schools and areas of study on year-end events, however we do not have the bandwidth to fully plan and execute all of the year-end celebrations and awards events. Support for these will be handled on a case by case basis.
Our designers are able to help you create visually appealing materials that enhance and promote your work:
Our team can assist you with printed materials through Printing & Mailing Services provided you have a budget and index to charge.
Please keep in mind that Printing & Mailing Services requires at least five working days for their print services. Additional charges may be incurred for any print job with a shorter deadline.
Printed material can be delivered directly to you for distribution, or our student staff may assist with campus/community-wide distribution of printed materials with appropriate lead time.
Our team can assist in documenting your events, programs and people with high quality photos and video. Each photo and video request is considered on a case-by-case basis with preference given to opportunities that allow our team to share the story with as wide an audience as possible.
Before making a photo or video request, please consider the following:
The university requires individuals (including all OSU faculty, staff and students) to sign a model release form when they are included in university communications (e.g., featured in photography, videography or written material).
Electronic signing of model releases is available via DocuSign. Instructions for DocuSign model release forms
The university requires individuals to sign a model release form when they are photographed, including all Oregon State faculty, staff and students.
Our Web & Digital Communications Specialist can help share content across the College’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or YouTube, or provide guidance and best practices on how to share content on school, academic programs, or office social media channels.
Accounts that CLA Marketing manages and the types of content we post on each:
please note: not all requests are fulfilled
Our Web & Digital Communications Specialist can help create and edit content across the College’s websites, or provide guidance and best practices on why and how to create your own pages.
Due to the high volume of requests, we prioritize strategic projects that advance the College and school-wide initiatives.
We take on projects for specific areas of study as time and resources permit.
If we are unable to take on your project due to volume or other priorities, we will direct you to other helpful resources to get the job done.
It’s important to give our team ample lead time to complete your project, and others in the queue, in a professional and timely manner.
Please review your materials before submitting, and please limit edit requests to two.
The marketing team does not currently assist with podcast production. However, there are some OSU resources available:
Two OSU website options are available for content that doesn't belong on CLA sites (i.e. faculty information—full CV, long bio, etc.—sites, individual class content, etc.):
Both of these types of sites are free and affiliated with the University (either option will have oregonstate.edu in their URL). Both have the option to give different ONID users permissions to edit pages on the site.
There are other commercial options available (Reclaim, Squarespace, Wix, etc.), but they will not be affiliated with OSU and will include, at a minimum, monthly hosting fees as well as recurring domain name registration fees.
We do not help design or code non-CLA websites. If you want to link from your CLA bio page to your faculty site, submit a project request and we'll help you set that up.
