Tell the Story

The Department of Marketing and Public Relations at Southwestern Adventist University exists for the sole purpose of telling the story of the University in a compelling way.  Our goal is to provide resources that promote Southwestern, articulate its ideals, and strengthen its recognition in the local community and around the world.  Please visit our quick links to resources, below, to let us know how we can be of service.

Celebrating Our 125th Anniversary

Southwestern Adventist University was established in the fall of 1893. The first day of classes was January 7, 1894. Traditionally, Southwestern celebrates anniversary milestones on the academic year rather than the calendar or fiscal year. SWAU's 125th anniversary will thus officially be celebrated from September 2018 through May 2019. The media kit and designs are available to faculty and staff on Sharepoint and to the public by request to marketing@swau.edu.

Graphic Design

Whether your project is for web, print, or some other application, our award-winning team is dedicated to producing work that looks great, achieves results, and strengthens the Southwestern Adventist University brand.  Request help with your project by filling out this form and submitting it to marketing@swau.edu.

Web and Interactive

Although writing interactive applications is mainly the domain of Information Technology Services, our designers are willing and ready to consult with the ITS team to tell the Southwestern story through modern technology in stunning, standards-compliant ways.  Request updates to your website presence by calling or emailing the Director of Marketing & PR.  Some requests are subject to input from the Website Services Committee.  We will work with you to make your website dreams come true. 

Photography/Videography

Our department maintains a library of photos and videos related to University locations, personnel, and events.  To request a photographer/videographer or photos/videos from a specific event, please contact us to make proper arrangements.

Media Relations

A major component of communicating about Southwestern involves alerting the media and the general public to what is happening at the University.  Among the resources at our fingertips are avenues to local newspapers, radio, social media, and television stations.  

A more comprehensive list of services and resources is available here.  We're here to help you tell the story!

Awards

The Department of Marketing and PR has won awards for Best Promo Videos for the last three years at the annual Society of Adventist Communicators Convention. Marketing and PR and IT also won an award for the Best New Website.
