A strong visual identity helps to unify and strengthen Delgado Community College as an institution of academic excellence. This is important in attracting high-quality students and faculty. It is for this reason that all creative content representing the College to off-campus entities must come through Delgado Communications and Marketing. Team members work with college-wide constituents to ensure accuracy and inclusiveness. It is our goal to provide you with the best possible products in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our professional staff works with outside vendors to ensure that your project is completed to the highest standards possible, for the best price available.
During the 2021-2022 academic year, Delgado's CMPR team produced more than 670 flyers, signs, ads, catalogs, promotional items, bulletins, invitations, announcements, banners, posters, letterheads--the list goes on. Last year, the team also produced two television commercials and more than a dozen promotional videos. We write and produce dozens of radio commercials as well. Our photographers record all major--and many not-so-major--events taking place at all Delgado locations and around the region. These images are used on the Delgado website, in news releases, and in all official publications and online communications. The Delgado website was visited more than 7 million times last academic year, with more than 2 million visits to the homepage at www.dcc.edu

Procedures and Processes
Communications and Marketing serves the entire College and receives hundreds of requests per year. To meet these requests on deadline, planning and scheduling are critical. Typically, projects are completed on a first-come first-served basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least several weeks in advance to request production of graphic design and/or printed materials. Please also email email@example.com to place orders for stationery and business cards.
Note that projects costing $5,000 or more must go through the College’s established bidding process, which can take up to 21 days, depending on the cost of the job. Bids are sent to at least five vendors to achieve the best price. You will need to enter a purchase requisition and obtain a purchase order through the Purchasing Office. This process can take up to a week or longer.
