We help tell Sewanee's stories—stories about our students, our programs, our alumni, and our people. These stories, well told, enhance the University's reputation, broaden its reach, support recruitment, and strengthen bonds with alumni, parents, our community, and indeed the world.

Policies & Procedures

Strategic Alignment

Primarily, the office plans and executes marketing projects for the admission offices at the School of Theology and the College of Arts and Sciences, and for University Advancement in support of University goals. The office also works with departments, programs, and University initiatives to promote Sewanee's truly distinctive offerings.

Media inquiries

Members of the news media may contact the Office of Marketing and Communications to request assistance in finding the right sources for a story. Sewanee's faculty and staff are available to provide analysis and context on a variety of topics. To obtain access, request an on-campus interview, or request campus video or photo access, press representatives must contact this office in advance.

Services & Resources

Design & Production Support

The office can help design and produce a variety of printed materials. From invitations to brochures to posters, we help develop a concept, produce copy/layout, and manage the production and mailing process.

Print Services

Print Services is the University’s copying and printing center. Our staff assists faculty, staff, students, and community members with their desktop publishing, printing, and copying needs. Regular office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Proofreading & graphic review

Materials intended for external audiences or for official University use, but developed without the office's involvement, must still be reviewed for style consistency and proper graphic usage. Please allow three business days for proofing and graphic identity assessment.

News releases

The Office of Marketing and Communications is dedicated to sharing Sewanee news with the media and to helping journalists secure expert interviews, photographs, and other resources for stories. If a faculty or staff member has a potential news story, please see the news release information below. Remember that academic departments can post news of specific interest to prospective students or to the campus community to the University website. 

Website management, training, and support

The office manages most top-level pages on the University’s domain sewanee.edu, while individual departments and programs are responsible for the content on their sites. The office provides access to and training on the University’s content management system, and monitors user experience, broken links, and site traffic.

Photography Services

Need photos for a project or a just a new headshot? We will help you find a resource, take the photo ourselves, and/or provide access to our database of existing photography.
