Marketing Communications at Wheaton College

The Department of Marketing Communications is a diverse collection of marketing and communications professionals who have a passion for telling the Wheaton College story. Our experienced team offers its expertise to help your marketing initiatives reach your audience, connect with the mission, and reinforce the identity of the College in order to achieve your desired goals.


The goal of marketing is always to move people to some type of action. The four key words below provide a simple framework for us to reference as we collaborate together.

  • Value - Who is my target audience? Is what we are communicating valuable to the target audience? What do I want them to do with the information?
  • Accountability - Can we deliver on the promises being made?
  • Simplicity - Have all unnecessary elements been removed (words & design) in order to create the greatest clarity?
  • Consistency - Is it consistent with the Wheaton College mission and brand guidelines?
