Unifying the University's Message and Image

BSU marketing efforts focus on creating and disseminating a unified message and image that supports the University's mission, vision and signature themes.  

The communications and marketing office produces promotional materials and merchandise, TV and radio spots, and print advertising to meet the University's marketing needs.  In addition, the office develops, oversees and updates the University's graphic standards and identity policies and manages BSU's licensing and royalties program. The office assists with graphic standards regarding campus signage and bannering.  Marketing responsibilities include Bemidji State's web content and design.

In 2006, the Integrated Marketing Team (IMT) was charged with creating BSU's marketing strategy and tactics in conjunction with the Office of Communications and Marketing. IMT has tapped expertise from within the group, the University, and an outside consulting firm to advance its initiatives.

The IMT membership includes directors or executive directors of
