When you make the decision to advertise in external media, you will want to visit Advertising Review where you will find tips and guidance on creating an effective ad. With the exception of job postings, legal notices, classified advertisements, or advertisements in campus media, your ad must be reviewed by University Communications and Marketing professionals who can work to secure optimal ad rates and placements and provide guidance about how to maximize promotional opportunities. Ad review ensures Rutgers is presented to the public in a consistent and coherent manner and that university resources are used effectively.
