Media/Communication/Event Request Guidelines
Marketing & Communications at The Ohio State University at Mansfield offers many services to our campus, including outreach, communications, public relations, and advertising. These guidelines are intended to help you select the services you have available to make the best use of our resources. Since January 2016, we have been partners with Marketing and Communications at North Central State College in seeking to create greater capacity and efficiency while retaining the unique vision and profile of our respective institutions.
The starting point for obtaining services is making a request. Depending on your needs, please submit the appropriate form below. Once we receive your request, a staff member will contact you to verify that we have received the request, validate the details of the request, and provide an estimated start and end date.
Below is a listing of services. Please read them before filling out a form in order to choose the appropriate services for your needs. Note that for larger projects, you may need to complete several forms through other departments. For example, such as a set-up form for events and a media form for press coverage.
Please submit requests at least two weeks before the service is needed to allow for appropriate time to schedule and complete the request. Calendar items should be submitted as soon as the event details are finalized. Larger projects may require up to four weeks lead time.
& Communications can assist with determining costs, design and placement
of print, online, radio and TV advertising. Any costs for advertising are
usually paid for from the requestor’s budget.
& Communications provides guidance with Trademark and Licensing approvals
for merchandise, apparel, and other tangible goods. We have developed
campus-specific brand guidelines and can assist you in the proper use of the
Ohio State and Ohio State Mansfield logos as well as Shared Services logos
