Help Yourself to Our Self-Service Portal & Resources

University Marketing and Communications provides self-serve resources, informational workshops and, of course, full-service support for projects that align with the university’s Transformation 2030 strategic plan and leadership objectives.

Self-Service Resources

Templates and Toolkits

Our Templates and Toolkits resource, such as Canva, stationary and templates, enables SJSU users to create integrated marketing campaigns without opening a formal project request. For many, this is the fastest path to produce straightforward, on-brand marketing and communication materials.

Photography Requests

If you are unable to find specific photography that your team needs, UMC’s photo services team can provide what may need by submitting a photography service request form.

Request Identity Assets

Do you need a letterhead template, campus unit lockup or SJSU typeface? Get started by filling out a request form, and a member of our team will get in touch with you.

Brand Permissions

The Brand Permission form serves as a critical step in ensuring that all branded materials align with the SJSU Brand Style Guide. Whether you are a vendor or an SJSU colleague, it's important to adhere to these guidelines to maintain the integrity and consistency of the SJSU brand.

Film/Photo Permits & CSU Media Release Forms

Request permission to film or set up a photoshoot on campus or submit your CSU Media Release Form.

University Marks

The use of university marks across all platforms helps to deepen recognition of SJSU among our audiences and visually connects the many ways we tell the stories of Spartans.

SJSU Photo Library

Our PhotoShelter gives SJSU users access to thousands of images by category. These images can be imported into our Templates & Toolkits resource for your self-service design project, incorporated into presentations or leveraged for larger projects that require a formal marketing request.

Music Library

Our Music library provides audio clips that can help convey emotion and energy in SJSU social media posts or video projects. These soundbites add a subtle but important enhancement for an audience’s engagement with your message. Learn how you can submit a request.

Email Marketing

Our email marketing platform, Marketo, can be accessed by approved designees who are responsible for communicating on behalf of a department, division or college. IT provisioning and training is required for the platform. Inactive users may have seats withdrawn and reassigned to provide equitable access. Add yourself to the waitlist today.

Not Sure Or Need More Help?

Though UMC encourages the use of our self-service resources, tools and templates, some larger projects may call for additional support. UMC can help scope out your project and determine how best to approach it. Submit a formal project request to get started! We’ll evaluate your request, follow up in a timely manner and work with you to identify the right options. If we’re unable to take on a lead role ourselves, we can provide the right tools and resources for you. We’re here to help!
