MarCom produces a variety of communications to articulate specific UITannouncements to MSU faculty, staff, and students. Each communication is written and edited for clarity and to the specifications that are needed for different types of audiences. Different forms of content that MarCom can generate are news releases, emails, print products, calendar events, MSU Today entries, and more.
Forms of communication vary for different audiences. If a communication is meant for faculty and staff, we can suggest if your message is suited for an email sent to a listserv, a release that will appear on the UIT website news feed, an event or announcement featured in the tri-weekly MSU Todayemail and more.
Note that communications that are meant tobe sent toMSU students —mostly emails to the student listserv — must be submitted at least a week in advance to gain approvals for publish through the proper channels.

Simplechanges, like an update in software pricing, grammar edits to copy andinserting hyperlinks, can be easily made and published quickly. More dramatic changes, such as a web redesign, new webpage, graphic creationand all new copy, can take more time to construct and we ask that you submit requests at least a week ahead of time.
