The Office of Communications & Engagement

Our Purpose

The Office of Communications & Engagement is here to help faculty and staff at the USF College of The Arts with a variety of marketing and promotion services for official events, conferences, and academic recruitment. The information provided below outlines the types of services and support provided to our academic and research units. For specific questions contact Karen Frank, Assistant Dean, at or (813) 974-5135.

Event Marketing

The information here will help clarify the process for promoting the events you organize at the USF College of The Arts. In your role as an event organizer, you are creating opportunities for the community to experience and learn from the arts up close, and for our students to get real-world experience in their artistic professions. Our role as External Relations is to help you communicate with the USF and Tampa Bay communities.

USF Brand Usage

USF's brand is expressed by all visual and written messages produced by USF. It is important that all university communications project USF's unique personality through color, style, and message. Because you are a part of the College of The Arts, the correct logo to use in your publications would be the version of the USF logo with “College of The Arts” text (USF CoTA logo for short). These links provide information for correct brand usage.
