University Relations works with clients across campus to develop creative projects and marketing strategies that advance UNI and its colleges, departments and programs. Initiatives include (but are not limited to):

  1. Publications:  UR's staff of writers/editors/project managers, graphic designers and the photojournalist work with campus offices to produce high-profile publications (printed and electronic).

  2. Marketing Strategy: No matter what we’re producing, i.e. a video, website, photograph, advertisement, brochure, we can help clients start with a plan that is in tune with the communications and marketing strategies for UNI. We will ensure the client's project or family of projects appropriately uses the UNI brand, while creatively promoting an event, program or initiative in its entirety.
