Project Timelines

PROJECTS

University Communications and Marketing’s main function is to promote and advance the University’s internal and external image and reputation. In addition to focusing on the University’s overall strategic priorities, the team also assists departments in the development of cost-effective marketing and advertising strategies designed to drive growth and visibility within individual programs and colleges.

Our team assists with providing planning, copywriting, design and production services. We also manage all placement and reservation of advertising including newspaper and magazine space, outdoor billboards, transit signs and broadcast time.

Additionally, we provide support that includes collaboration with our in-house creative services division to complete your project.

PRODUCTION TIMELINES

Listed below are estimated production timelines for commonly requested projects ranging from brochures to postcards to social media graphics to digital sign slides. Projects may take less or more time depending on the current marketing project queue and depth of the project.

Please Note: At least a two-week lead time is appreciated for all projects and longer lead-times are always appreciated. Small quantity or simple projects may take only a few days from submission to printed or posted final product. Larger quantities or more complex projects can 4 weeks or more.
