Marketing and Communications

The DELTA Marketing and Communications (MarComm) unit designs, implements and manages strategic online and digital marketing and communications initiatives for NC State’s 100+ online and digital education programs and DELTA. DELTA MC supports colleges and units on campus by managing market research (for credit and noncredit), the management of sophisticated search engine optimization (SEO) techniques, new marketing strategies and technologies to reach and expand target audiences. DELTA MC staff produces a monthly newsletter aimed to keep faculty and staff informed of technology updates, workshops, grants proposals and projects to promote DELTA services within the university. The combination of marketing and communications has helped to internally and externally build awareness that NC State’s digital education and learning technologies are among the world’s top-tier online and DE programs.
