NCTC Office of Marketing and Public Relations


Guide to Services


In general, the function of the Office of Marketing & Public Relations at NCTC is to articulate the mission and purpose of NCTC to prospective students and the general public and to publicize and promote instructional programs, student services and campus events. The office serves all NCTC campuses and is responsible for print, broadcast and web-based media relations, as well as graphic design, publication layout and prepress, photography and printing/reproduction services for the College.
