Marketing & Communications

Marketing and Communications is PLU’s in-house marketing, creative, digital, and communications management group. We lead initiatives and major projects on behalf of the university and also serve as the key strategic marketing partner to external-facing PLU departments. In Marcom and PLU, diversity is intrinsic to the vitality of learning, resilience and growth. Marcom welcomes team members from historically underrepresented and minoritized groups, and others who would bring broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities.

They also maintain the news library and provide photo services. The team focuses on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain constituents. We maintain PLU social media channels and produce video content.
