Office of Media and Communications
Rocky Mountain College employs a uniquely skilled team of media professionals to oversee and assist with all internal and external communications for the College. The Office of Media and Communications (OMC) designs mailings, posters, advertisements, and a wide variety of other materials campus-wide, as well as organizes press events and other promotions.
OMC is responsible for the production of Green & Gold, Rocky Mountain College's semi-annual magazine, the weekly Rocky eDigest faculty and staff newsletter, press releases, website content, and a number of other print and electronic publications. Photography, maintenance of logo and graphic standards, and coordination with design and printing contractors are also handled through OMC.

Here is some other information that might help:
For Faculty & Staff
OMC serves as liaison to the news outlets and to many of the College's audiences. With the help of OMC, faculty and staff offer professional perspectives that represent their points and the College most effectively. The team will help craft op-ed material for media and supplies useful ways to share RMC news.
In the event that you are contacted by a member of the press, please contact the director of communications before you issue any comments or statements. If you wish to suggest an article or media release, submit a media request or call 406.657.1104. To meet media deadlines for event publicity, press releases are issued only if all information is received three weeks prior to an event.
Editing & Design Services
The Office of Media and Communications is equipped to create a variety of designs for College-wide communications, including brochures, posters, logos, advertisements, and other printed and digital materials. They are responsible for ensuring that all publications bearing the RMC logo adhere to current brand standards and accurately and appropriately represent Rocky Mountain College. To that end, services are complimentary to RMC faculty and staff and include:
- Consultation with a graphic designer or editor
- Design and layout
- Coordination of printing efforts*
- Editing, writing, proof-reading, ensuring that all materials meet College standards
*Note: OMC can assist with the coordination of printing for large projects (100+ copies) or especially complicated designs; however, the cost of such printed materials will be charged to the department requesting the design.
Submit your request to OMC through the media request form and provide the following information:
- Description of the event and/or reason for the publication
- Desired audience
- Size requirements, quantity
- Approval information (if applicable)
Your request will be responded to within 48 hours, Monday-Friday, by an OMC staff member. Depending on the type of request, a phone consultation or in-person meeting will be scheduled to determine the scope of the project, and a project completion date will be set. A proof of the completed design/project will be emailed to you for approval. Should you feel that the design/project does not meet your needs, or requires further revision, OMC will contact you personally to develop a plan to complete the requested changes.
