Office of Marketing and Communications

Our Mission

The mission of Marketing and Communications is to build awareness of the student experience and value of an RRCC education to prospective and current students, and to build relationships and foster communications internally in support of the same goal. We want to share our enthusiasm for the Red Rocks experience with the community, nation and world.

Services for Faculty and Staff

To allow enough time for us to produce your materials, please stick to the recommended lead times when submitting your project requests.

Our creative team of designers is available to assist in developing print and web materials to assist in the marketing of your program. Departments are responsible for providing content, mailing lists, and for printing and distribution costs for their respective materials.

The Marketing & Communications department manages and maintains the website, however, each department is responsible for ensuring the content on their pages is accurate and up to date. If you need assistance updating the content on your page, our web team is ready to help.
