Marketing and Communications
at Yavapai College
Charged with the overall marketing and promotion of the College, we do this through research, data collection, multiple communication vehicles and by working in partnership with faculty and staff. We offer several services to the college community, and located in building 32 we're only a phone call (x2188) or e-mail away.
The YC marketing department includes Tim Diesch, Amy Fruchter, Mike Lange and Kim Kapin.

Can I write my own news release?
Because this office is responsible for Yavapai College's media relations, contact with the media must be coordinated through the Marketing and Communications Department at YC.
The Communications Director is available to assist you with researching and writing a news release or news item for your program or event. It will help to speed the production of your release if you compile in advance the pertinent information (who, what, where, when, why, and how), along with any publicity photos that you may have.
While it is possible for you to draft the content of your own news release, it must then be shared with the Marketing & Communications Dept. for review, needed editing, and distribution to the media. This procedure works well because this office has established contacts with journalists and an up-to-date media list to maximize exposure.
"Great press release. It's very impressive! Thank you." -- Dr. Penny Wills, YC President
Request still photography
Marketing-related still photography can be requested using a photo request form online. Once you've logged in to the web site, the form is accessible under the Employee tab --> My Services --> Employee Main Menu, which is where you'll see:
I need a printed brochure, flyer, postcard, etc.
Yavapai College's Design Services is here to help. To initiate a design project, the design team needs a marketing request form or "MRF" (available in myYC portal) that details the project specifications and allows them to schedule and track it.
