Branding, Marketing and Communication

As a student-centered learning institution of nearly 100 years, Murray State University has no shortage of great stories that extend the attributes of students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters. Our efforts help protect, strengthen and advance Murray State University’s brand and reputation to all internal and external parties. An integral part of University Advancement, the Office of Branding, Marketing and Communication creates public awareness of Murray State to provide increased value to the community, region, country and world.

The Office of Branding, Marketing and Communication coordinates and oversees all media and public relations activities including, but not limited to:

  • Facilitating media inquiries
  • Determining University information to disseminate to the media
  • Serving as or assigning an expert spokesperson as appropriate

If you have a media pitch, news release or crisis communication issue you would like assistance with, or general writing/editing and publication advice, we are here to help. Also, if you think you have an exciting piece for one of our many internal and external publications, please reach out to us.  We’re always looking for great ideas!
