Project Request Information

As SUNY Oswego grows and changes on its path to Vision 4040, so too must the Office of Communications and Marketing. After a review of office operations in line with the university’s strategic objectives, we are introducing a revised approach to handling project requests and crafting creative content.

Our emphasis will now be on projects that promise the most significant positive impact for the university. This encompasses endeavors related to undergraduate and graduate student recruitment and admissions. Additionally, our commitment remains steadfast in elevating SUNY Oswego's national reputation. To guarantee a unified and compelling design that best portrays the University’s brand, the creative direction for all projects will remain under the purview of Communications and Marketing.

What does this mean for you?

You may still submit your project request. We will review your submission and one of our team members will be in touch. By submitting this request, you agree that Communications and Marketing maintains creative authority on the project. Please review the following before requesting.


Communications and Marketing prioritizes work that has the potential to make the largest impact for the University. This includes projects that affect graduate and undergraduate recruitment and admissions, as well as those that raise Oswego's image to a state and national level. 

Creative Authority

To ensure consistent, cohesive design that best advances the University’s image, as well as content that adheres to University style guidelines, The Office of Communications and Marketing retains creative authority on all projects we develop.
