Marketing & Communications Office

We’re here to tell the Montreat College story—to each other and those outside of the college. We make this happen through creating new media, producing publications, designing web pages, writing news stories, administering media and brand policy, and keeping you informed.

What We Do

From marketing and public relations to photography, video projects, and the college website, the Marketing and Communications Office performs a host of essential services for the college.

Athletics Brand Guidelines

Athletics is an integral part of Montreat College. Because of the centrality of athletics to both the student experience and the public perception of the college, it is important for Montreat College Athletics to project a clear and consistent athletic brand to players, prospective students, supporters, and community members.


Social Media Policy

Social media outlets can be used to create, sustain, and improve Montreat College’s brand image. In addition to the college’s official social media outlets administered by the MarComm Office, college departments can utilize affiliate social media outlets to engage and build relationships with target audiences, recruit students, promote programs and events, and reach followers with last-minute news and alerts. All Montreat College-affiliated social media pages must be approved by the MarComm Office and must adhere to Montreat College social media policy.
