The mission of the office is to protect, project and enhance the image of the university to potential students, donors and other supporters through high-quality publications.

Our efforts are prioritized using the following considerations:

  • audience importance to the university
  • scope / mission
  • time frame

How to use Publications Services

Things to know:
  • Who you're trying to reach — prospective students, potential donors, campus and community, etc.
  • What you want them to know or do as a result — choose to attend NDSU, give money, attend an event, etc.
  • How many you need, if printing
  • How much you can spend

If you have written copy, bring it along on a disk. The information should already be proofread by you and approved by any others necessary. If you want help with writing or editing, give us a call.

General rule of thumb for time frame is 4-6 weeks for writing, design, production and printing. Bigger projects take longer, and advance notice is important because we usually have about two weeks' worth of work at any given time.

You will be asked to sign off on the design before it goes to press.

For projects costing more than $5,000, a purchase requisition must be submitted to Purchasing. Type "Forward to Publications Services for bidding" onto the form and Purchasing will give us the requisition.
