"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end."

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)

Marketing & Communications

The Office of Marketing & Communications is on the second floor of The Younger Center. Here you will find the office for the Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, and the MARCOM office staff who offer services including copywriting, graphic design, web design, photography, media relations, KWBX radio announcements, and a full-service copy center.


The Office Marketing & Communications works with the media to place paid advertisements in local and national publications. The office is also responsible for the design of each advertisement to ensure compliance with graphic standards and publication requirements. If you are interested in placing an advertisement for an event, contact our office.

Press Releases

The Office of Marketing & Communications is responsible for generating and distributing all of the college’s press releases. If your event is of interest to the general public, you may submit a request for a press release to the Vice President for Marketing & Communications. "Whassup" is a daily public event announcement broadcast twice an hour, on the college radio station, KWBX 90.3 FM, Air1. Please submit your request at least four to six weeks before the event to ensure placement and time on-air. The service is free to churches and nonprofit agencies.

Public Relations

"The methods and activities employed to establish and promote a favorable relationship with the public," and "a promotion intended to create goodwill for a person or institution," as defined by Webster's Dictionary are the intentions of the Office of Marketing & Communications. PR shapes how the public perceives Corban and is essential in communicating our mission and purpose "to educate Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ."

Graphic Design

The Office of Marketing & Communications performs graphic design services for the University and each department. The graphic standards of Corban are an important aspect to its overall image and are carefully implemented through our on-site graphic designers (see Policies). All external printing projects that represent any aspect of Corban University must be approved by the Vice President for Marketing & Communications. If departments have a project they would like to submit, this can be done through our online Project Request Form.


Corban's website is designed, maintained and updated by Marketing & Communications in tandem with Information Services personnel. All departments and offices may send web changes via email to Generally, web changes will be done within one week, but each request is unique depending on its complexity. 


The majority of the photos used in Corban's printed materials and web pages are taken by on-campus photographers. When there is a need for event documentation or a specific photo, contact our office to set up a photo appointment.
