The Office of Communications and Marketing supports the university’s mission and strategic plan by building public support and understanding by implementing a comprehensive communications and marketing plan. The plan incorporates the effective use of mass communications tools and marketing tactics among which include producing several educational and informational publications.


The Communications and Marketing team promotes the university’s goals through the release of timely information regarding the activities of its students, faculty, and staff. The department accomplishes this through working with the news media, publishing a university newsletter, annual report, university magazine and creating internal and external partnerships that help tell the NSU story.

Visual Identity Manual

An identity system is an important element in an organization. It represents the people, products and services of an organization, and also the reputation it has achieved. The Office of Communications and Marketing is presenting the Norfolk State University Visual Identity Guide.

This manual serves to promote a consistent professional image of the University to our students, alumni, and the community. Implementing the policies and recommendations of the Visual Identity Guide will strengthen our University’s goal of creating a unified visual identity as an academic institution.

This manual explains and illustrates the proper use of the logo for practical application and layout in publications. The new identity system replaces previous graphics and symbols used by various departments and offices at the University. The Athletics division of the University has its own logo system, but is encouraged to use the University identity system when it is applicable.
