The Office of University Communications serves as the University’s marketing, communications and media relations office. We work with each college and unit on campus to develop and implement strategic communication goals and strategies that support the priorities of the unit and the University as a whole.
University Communications is located in the Hertzog Building on Wiggins Road, south of the University Library.
We assign a communications manager to each unit (see their contact information on the back of this sheet) that will be your liaison for all of the services we provide, including:
Media requests for information and interviews, pitching faculty experts, sending out press releases, media training for faculty and staff
Stories for print and digital platforms including utep.edu, college websites and the UTEP Magazine, or to pitch to local/regional/national/international media
Photography and video production for marketing and promotional materials, as well as multimedia platforms including print, web, electronic display boards and social media
Brochures, banners, print or electronic ads, programs, invitations, maps and other print or digital projects
Consultation on use of the official UTEP graphic identity elements, including logos, and incorporating University branding into your print or digital projects
The web team oversees and provides guidance for all departments at UTEP, promoting a coordinated university presence. We maintain and disseminate university Web standards.
Content for UTEP’s official social media channels, training and consultation on social media guidelines and best practices for secondary UTEP social media channels maintained by colleges, departments, programs and other units on campus
Coordination of advertising and sponsorship opportunities to leverage unified messages and available resources
The UTEP Public Information Office can assist media personnel with interview requests to speak with University administrators, faculty expert sources, or students; or to arrange campus visits for photography / videography shoots.
