Welcome to the External Relations Department!
Offices Serving Advancement and External Relations and the Campus
We can provide counsel on broad marketing strategies and tactics, focusing on how you fit into the larger picture and how your efforts can enhance that picture. Through bundling, you can sometimes reap cost and image benefits. We can help design your advertisement/marketing projects, along with giving you guidance on placements. We will ensure the messages being reached by our constituency base are consistent and effective.
We also want to publicize your department’s news on both Tarleton’s homepage and the newly created Tarleton Today, which is a one-stop-shopping site featuring university events, news, information and sports updates . We welcome items for placement in this site, on the homepage and in the calendar.
From brochures and pamphlets to journals and anthologies, the Office of Creative Services is available to help produce campus publications. We can transform your text and visuals into professionally designed print and electronic publications. We can also assist in the competitive bid print purchasing process and provide direction for presenting your message in print.
The Office of Media Relations work to promote and communicate Tarleton’s mission to both internal and external audiences through methods such as Web site postings, press releases, media pitches, the maintenance of an experts list and the management of interview requests. Our goal is to showcase Tarleton and to inform local, state and national audiences about our fantastic faculty, outstanding educational programs, innovative research projects and magnificent events that occur on our campus. In general, news releases are intended to publicize 1) honors or achievements by faculty, staff or students 2) programs that are open to the public or of significant interest to the entire Tarleton community, i.e., faculty, staff and students 3) news, programs, events or efforts that would in some way be of interest to those outside Tarleton.
The Office of Community Relations links Tarleton State University to local, state and national associations as well as to business, civic and community groups. The office is committed to developing strategic partners, building relationships and promoting the mission of the University.
The mission of the Dora Lee Langdon Center is to extend the reach of Tarleton State University by developing and maintaining relationships with a broader constituency, to enhance the public image of the University through quality cultural programs and to encourage life-long learning through community education opportunities.
The Office of Web Services creates and maintains the infrastructure for the university website. Web Services utilizes Cascade Server as the university’s web content management system and provides full Cascade support, as well as individual training sessions. We manage website accounts for departments, students, faculty, staff, and organizations. Web Services consults with departments and organizations to enhance their web presence or construct a new site. The mission of Web Services is to support the goals of the university by providing an informative and inviting web presence to prospective students as well as current students, faculty, and staff.
