The Publications component of the Communications and Marketing area produces most publications distributed to off-campus audiences.

What We Do
Messages to major university audiences and stakeholders are carried primarily through university- and college-level communications. To maintain and enhance IUP’s image, it is important that communications vehicles reflect visual and style standards that reinforce IUP’s brand identity and enhance the image of the university. As it relates to printed communications, the publications area of the Communications and Marketing Office produces most of the printed communications distributed to these audiences and stakeholders in order to provide a consistent, clear approach to visual and editorial communications. 

Types of Work We Do
Examples of projects for which the publications area is responsible are recruitment materials, schedules of events, grant-funded program brochures, University Event collateral, postcards, mailers, viewbooks and booklets. The publications area typically does not have responsibility for personal and business correspondence, programs, invitations, training manuals, academic journals and articles or newsletters.

Scheduling Your Job
A due date for projects is assessed after examining the scope of current projects in the department, annual projects expected to begin, and the amount of creative time needed to execute your idea. Assignments are made to publications personnel based on current workload, project status of each designer and editor, nature and timing of the project, and established priorities of the unit. When requests cannot be met, the unit will provide editorial, visual design, production consultation, and will recommend another solution or try to refer the client to other appropriate service sources.
