To fulfill our mission -- to foster relationships, and to accurately communicate “the Oakwood story” to our local and global communities – the Office of Integrated Marketing & Public Relations serves as a liaison between the University and the community, including local and national media. This office publicizes the activities and achievements of the University’s students and employees, and promotes campus events, through internal and external University communications, publications and advertising. Staff members also assist in projects that develop and strengthen the University's relationship with the Huntsville community.
The office is located in East Hall, the most historic building on campus, which was built in 1909. The building has served as a sanitarium, residence hall for academy boys, orphanage, faculty residence, and at one time housed the Department of English. Renovated in the mid-1990s, East Hall now houses the Division of Advancement and Development.
