Easy access to information and imagery to effectively represent Appalachian

University Communications makes it easy to create effective, great-looking communications that meet these expectations. We offer two options:

  • “Create Your Own” materials using resources located here on our online Toolbox

  • In-house marketing/public relations support for custom materials, communication plans, ad campaigns and more, upon request

Creative yet similar

Using Toolbox resources and abiding by identity standards does not mean all materials must look exactly alike. Rather, it means communications will have consistent graphic identifiers, photographic emphasis, fonts, colors and message, so that they are easily recognized as belonging to Appalachian.

How we work 

Appalachian uses a decentralized marketing effort led by the University Branding Council. This means that each of Appalachian’s colleges and units have their own Communication Liaison who works closely with University Communications to communicate on behalf of their campus area.
