Communications, Media Relations, and Marketing

The Communications, Media Relations, and Marketing Department supports Blinn's mission, vision and strategic priorities through the development, management, and implementation of the College’s marketing programs.

Department personnel are sensitive to the special nature of a college campus and especially to students, who generally are young and on their own for the first time. This calls for a safe and orderly environment so all members of the community may fulfill their individual missions.

Working in partnership with College administration, faculty, staff, student organizations, and the Blinn communities, the department creates and maintains a consistent, positive, and dynamic image for Blinn. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to those listed below.

Departments and programs seeking to request materials should submit a Marketing/Printed Materials Request Form found on the Marketing and Communications page located on myBLINN.

Departments and programs seeking to request web projects and updates should submit a Web Request Form found on the Marketing and Communications page located on myBLINN.

Branding

To ensure consistency throughout the College District, the Communications, Media Relations, and Marketing Department is charged with overseeing the branding efforts throughout the district. All graphic design for anything specific to Blinn College should be produced by the Communications, Media Relations, and Marketing Department.

Blinn logos are the trademark signature of Blinn College and intended for the exclusive use of the College. All official Blinn logos and verbiage (i.e. “Blinn College,” “Blinn College Buccaneers,” “Blinn,” “Blinn Buccaneers”…) must be approved prior to any type of usage. No reproduction of this visual signature may be used by any vendor, individual, company, organization, or entity for any purpose without permission of the Office of Marketing and Communications.
