University Marketing and Communications

University Marketing and Communications (UMC) is a team of strategy-first brand champions. We communicate Michigan Tech voices, opportunities, and experiences to the entire world. Academic departments, divisions, institutes, and organizations collaborate with UMC to promote undergraduate and graduate student enrollment, cultivate alumni affinity and support, and position our faculty researchers as leading scholars.


"University Marketing and Communications is a great collaborative partner—from idea generation, to design and development. Michigan Tech Admissions is proud to partner with UMC on recruitment projects."
