UC San Diego Marketing Council

The UC San Diego Marketing Council is a network of marketing and communications professionals from organizations, divisions and departments throughout the university. The Council meets monthly during the academic year to share information and hear speakers on marketing-related topics.

Our Mission

The Marketing Council mission is to network and share information that enables members to engage in marketing and communications best practices to promote consistent branding on behalf of the university as a whole as well as for individual campus units.

This is accomplished by:

  • Promoting and upholding campuswide brand identity standards
  • Sharing marketing-related information, activities, best practices and challenges
  • Learning from colleague/ professional development presentations
  • Serving as a portal for coordination, implementation and promotion of campuswide activities when needed
