Media and Public Relations

NSU's Communications and Marketing Department communicates the mission of Northern State University and helps attract new generations of students to develop their dreams at Northern.

We share stories about our students, faculty and programs. We use traditional advertising, news articles, video story-telling and social media to interest and attract students, inform the community, support faculty, update alumni and friends, and raise funds -€“ all to advance the ability of the university to support our students and their achievements. Our staff are skilled in communications planning, graphic design, writing/editing, photography, printing and print management, social media, and web development and design. We also are skilled at working with the news media.


Our staff prepare and disseminate news and photographs about the university, its people and its programs to newspaper, radio, television and online audiences.


Communications and Marketing also advises faculty, staff and students on media issues and acts as a clearinghouse for all press releases and official media statements.


Communications and Marketing is responsible for the Northern News section of the university Web site, and writes and edits articles published in the Northern Now news update and Northern Today magazine.
