Marketing and design

UAF is students, research and public service. Starting with careful analysis and strategy, University Relations supports all three by sharing the facts and stories that make up the university. We lead UAF's marketing and student recruitment efforts, as well as producing publications for print and web such as Aurora magazine, student recruitment materials (i.e., viewbooks and search pieces), Visit UAF tour rack card, and the annual holiday e-card. 


University Relations is responsible for UAF's recruitment and image marketing campaigns, from traditional radio, TV and print to digital platforms such as Google search, Pandora, YouTube, etc.

Here are some examples of campaign commercials:
