Let's collaborate

Getting in touch with us as early as possible helps us identify the right strategy, messaging, and scope of the project. We typically have a large volume of projects all at different stages so talking with us sooner vs. later helps us integrate the project into our workflow so we can meet your deadline.

In the Office of Marketing and Communications, it’s our job to let the voices of our community shine through in the stories we tell. Our office is committed to sharing authentic voices, and we seek to include a diverse range of perspectives and experiences that showcase how people from different backgrounds, faiths, and life experiences have found the passion that sets their vocation, as well as the community that roots and supports their journey, while on the Hill.



Founded in 1874 to educate the immigrant, the first-generation student, women, and the working class; diversity, equity, and inclusion have been foundational to the mission of St. Olaf College. Today we continue to strive to be a campus of welcome where students, faculty, and staff thrive by bringing their full humanity — gender identity, sexuality, race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic class, disability, religion, spirituality, and age — to the Hill each day.

While much progress has been made since the founding of the college, our aspirations for inclusive excellence must be ongoing, intentional, and transparent to everyone in our community, both in the present and future.
