Marketing & Brand Management
The role of Marketing & Brand Management is to focus, clarify and articulate the Arizona brand to differentiate it and maximize our competitive advantage as we pursue the funding and talent needed to tackle grand challenges. We aim to be collaborative leaders, conveners and connectors. We also seek to be the expert resource, crafting tools and resources to help University marketing and communications professionals succeed.
Trademarks & Licensing
The Trademarks & Licensing office exists to protect and promote the marks, names and logos of the University of Arizona.
