Office of External Affairs

Brand Management, Communications, Event Services, Graphics, Marketing, and Web Services

The Office of External Affairs is here to help you achieve your communications and marketing goals by providing support for internal and external communications, media relations, event planning, graphics, healthcare marketing, academic marketing, social media, videography, and website services. Our team partners with you to develop and implement strategic and effective marketing and communications plans by leveraging on various multi-media channels and internal and university resources. Our goal is to help you and your department achieve your marketing and communications goals while managing the OSU-CHS brand to comply with university marketing and brand management standards. To submit a project request, please use this online ticketing system.

This request form was created to encourage you to provide us with as much direction as possible from the beginning in order for us to meet your expectations and to maximize our team’s efficiency. Proposed projects need to be focused and mapped out - a single brochure, poster, postcard, webpage, etc. Completing this form will help our team determine the appropriate point of contact and ensure your project will be completed in a timely manner and as thoroughly as possible.

Completion dates are different for each request type. Each request type provides an average completion time, but keep in mind these factors:

  • Graphic design and print projects can take 2-4 weeks for completion, not including print time.
  • Jobs larger in scope may require more design time.
  • Please note we do not offer professional photography services at this time. We contract this work to outside vendors. If you have a photography request, we would be happy to work with your department to determine how best to pay for these services.
  • Videography projects require prior approval from the VP of External Affairs.
If additional information is needed upon receiving your request form, an External Affairs team member will contact you. Please know that the review and process of your information may take up to two business days.

Note: After submitting the form, you will receive an automatic email acknowledgment of your request. Please contact us at if you do not receive this email.
