The Department of Communications and Marketing uses strategic communications to increase knowledge of and support for the university among its various constituents and to enhance Elizabeth City State University’s image and identity. We strengthen existing relationships and create new ones by interacting with the media, marketing the university’s educational opportunities, programs, services and activities, and conveying the university’s key messages. As part of a two-way approach to communications and relationship-building, we also provide feedback from internal and external audiences and improve the image and identity of the university with that feedback.
