Our New Organization

After an extensive analysis and division reorganization, University Marketing and Communications (UMC) officially became the Division of Strategic Communications on July 1, 2015. 

This reorganization allows Ball State’s communication experts to implement best practices in higher education marketing and communications by focusing on high-level strategic university communication while partnering with the campus community to communicate the entire Ball State story through collaboration and accountability. 

As guided by the Division of Strategic Communications, all Ball State community members are now expected to be responsible for and involved in the creation of and adherence to the Ball State brand and message.
