The mission of the Division of University Marketing and Communications is to lead the development, promotion, and integration of the Gardner-Webb University brand through powerful and engaging content delivered consistently to our audiences.
To do this, we focus on the key pillars that set the Gardner-Webb experience apart from other schools, such as world-class programs and degree value; a strong Christian community with emphasis on the liberal arts; partnerships among students, faculty, the region, and beyond; and the ability of our students to flourish here.
We offer a comprehensive suite of services to our campus clients, including digital and print advertising, media and public relations, marketing consultation, website development, social management and email communications.
