Marketing Services

We believe strongly in the mission of St. Norbert College and all that it has to offer students, the community and the world, and we want others to know about the value of the services our college provides. As part of our on-campus marketing steering group, members of the campus community with marketing dollars develop marketing plans for their respective campaigns and marketing efforts to share that information.

To ensure that all communications directed to our key audiences benefit from consistent design and message, St. Norbert College has established a policy for the development and preparation of campus publications (print and e-publications). This policy applies to all campus publications that are prepared for prospective students and their families, alumni, friends of the college and parents.
