It is essential that our publications, both external and internal, meet the highest standards in terms of writing, design, content, photography, and production. Publications include the following:

  • Newsletters
  • Catalogues
  • Brochures
  • Flyers
  • Advertisements
  • Posters
  • Event Programs
  • Post cards
  • Folders
  • Invitations
  • Miscellaneous items (bookmarks, table tents, tickets, etc.)

The staff of the Office of Marketing and Communications is here to assist with printed communications needs. The staff have the training and skills to produce high quality publications while maintaining a high quality, consistent look for the college that aligns with branding established to the university and promotes Penn State Harrisburg as an intregated part of the University. This office is concerned with all external publications that target prospective students, parents, current students, alumni, donors, and friends and neighbors of the college as well as all internal communications intended for broad distribution.

To maintain the quality and consistency of institution-wide publications, and in accordance with the Penn State policy, the Office of Marketing and Communications must review all publications, both internal and external, and assign a U.Ed. number, regardless of whether the office designs the project.
