Changing student demographics, an increasingly competitive marketplace and an oversaturated, highly complex communications environment has demanded community colleges take a broader marketing approach. KCTCS's marketing and communications department is responsible for a myriad of things — branding, advertising, public relations, crisis communications, social media/digital communications, recruitment and enrollment management, public advocacy, web services and special events.
