Purpose and Personality of the Office of Marketing Communications



The Office of Marketing Communications promotes MCC and college special events. We work with departments and individuals across campus and welcome the opportunity to spread the good news about Middlesex people, programs and partnerships.

We fulfill our mission by creating:

  • Print & Electronic Publications
  • News Releases
  • Social Media Posts

Think of us first -- When you begin planning a special event or project – you may need to book a room, reserve technology support or submit a catering order -- don’t forget about publicity. The sooner you provide your information to us – and the more accurate and complete your accompanying materials are – the more we can help you promote your event.

Marketing Communications Requests

As soon as you are aware of your marketing or communications needs, please submit an online Marketing Communications Request Form.

Timeline -- There is a 14-day minimum turnaround for all Marketing Communications job requests. A request will not be moved into production until all job copy – and assets (photographs, logos, etc.) – are received by our office.

Jobs needed in less than 14 days should be discussed with the Director of Marketing Communications before any work begins.

(Please note: All Marketing Communications job requests expire after 60 days.)

Also, please be advised that requests for jobs to be printed by outside vendors require established funding and must be accompanied by a completed Purchase Order.

Job Request Planning Checklist

This checklist can help with planning your Marketing Communications job request:

  • Who -- Who is the audience for the publication? Will you be communicating information to prospective students, the college community, employers, etc.?
  • What -- What type of publication do you need? A poster? flier? brochure? newsletter? booklet? What do you want to communicate? What is your budget for the publication?
  • Where -- Where should the publication be delivered? To your office? To another department? To a mailing service?
  • When -- When do you need the publication delivered? (You will need to allow for additional time if the pieces are to be mailed.)
  • How -- How many copies do you need? How will the piece be distributed? Will it be mailed? If so, will you need envelopes? Does it need a reply card?
