Communications and Event Project Request

To request a communications or marketing project, use the Communications & Event Project Request form.

Please consider the goals and objectives of the project, what you hope to achieve, and the key messages you would like to communicate to your audience. After you have submitted the project request form, the Office of Communications will confirm your request, and, depending on the complexity of your project, schedule a planning meeting.

  • All projects must be requested at least 2 weeks before the desired due date.
  • Major projects like viewbooks, brochures and newsletters should be requested at least 8 weeks in advance.
  • Projects related to events should be initiated at least 12 weeks in advance.
  • Be sensitive to the academic cycle. At the peak of the fall and spring semesters, we have limited ability to absorb new projects. Plan ahead.

Questions? Contact Margaret Hair at mhair@ku.edu.
