Saint Louis University Marketing and Communications Division

Saint Louis University's Division of Marketing and Communications is an accomplished and award-winning group of strategic and creative professionals dedicated to telling SLU's story in many ways that showcases the University’s Jesuit mission, events and life on campus, research and community outreach.

We place the ads you see and hear online, in print, and on TV and the radio. We promote the University in the media and social media, manage the SLU website, write and design publications such as Newslink, Universitas, and maintain the University's brand, logos and design standards.

The division focuses its work on supporting these main areas:

  • Student and patient recruitment
  • Fundraising
  • SLU brand awareness and reputation
  • Effectively communicate to both internal and external audiences

We also consult with other units on their marketing plans, and use the University’s buying power to ensure all marketing units get the best prices for advertising.
