Project Request Form

To have a project added to the production calendar, please complete the request form at the bottom of this page. Each specialty area is tabbed and has timelines within each piece. New projects may require a meeting, depending on scope. MarCom is a full-service agency within the University and provides many services to enhance your projects for the most effective results. 

Information you should know about production timelines and services: 

Due to the number of brand partners and projects MarCom supports on all BenU campuses, the production schedule requires advance notice to best meet needs. Timelines can range from 2 to 12 weeks depending on the need, the current workload and other factors. The timeline for your project starts once MarCom receives all completed content/initiative details (including budget) and direction from you. You will receive a confirmation with overall project timelines and expectations once you submit the online form below. 

MarCom is responsible for ensuring that the overall BenU image including design, imagery and content, is kept within industry best practice brand guidelines in order to enhance the overall brand of the University. Our marketing and communications expertise, which includes a staff of professionals educated and trained in the areas of graphic design, writing, public relations, advertising, marketing and digital media, combined with your vision, will result in best results for your initiative. 

In addition to production duties, MarCom is a centralized creative force that works with the entire BenU community to develop new marketing campaigns and other University initiatives. We support every area at BenU and respecting these guidelines will allow us to provide our best to you and result in the best product for the University. 

If you are unable to work within this production time and/or meet the established deadlines, MarCom will provide you with a cost estimate to have the project externally produced with MarCom coordination through MarCom vetted vendors. We also have flier and ecommunication templates available to you for last minute requests we are unable to accommodate.
