Advertising & Sponsorship Information for Faculty & Staff

Advertising and sponsorships are powerful tools that put Rutgers in touch with the many audiences it serves. Advertising options can be mind-boggling, ranging from media-rich online advertising to more traditional, but still effective, print ads. Regardless of the format or the price—advertising costs run the gamut from triple digits to millions of dollars—a successful campaign starts with exploring the pages on this site. Sponsorship is another avenue for promoting Rutgers and increasing awareness of your unit's people, programs, and initiatives. On the flip side, finding sponsors for your events and programs can be helpful in offsetting costs. Use our resources to help maximize the impact of your event sponsorship.
