Director of Marketing and Communications - Oregon State University

Corvallis, OR • Full-Time • Closes May 13

The College of Agricultural Sciences is seeking a Director of Marketing and Communications. This is a full-time (1.00 FTE), 12-month, professional faculty position.

The Director of Marketing and Communications position serves as the chief marketing and communications officer for the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) and reports directly to the Dean. The director leads marketing and communication strategies for CAS, and for the Agricultural Experiment Station (AES).

The Director is in regular communication and works collaboratively with executive and programmatic leaders within CAS. Responsibilities include developing and implementing short- and long-range marketing communication plans to ensure that responsive and effective communications are part of the College in all its operations. The Director participates in strategic planning efforts as part of the Dean’s group and makes recommendations to executive management.

The Director collaborates with Extension and Forestry communicators to lead and coordinate communication strategies for the Statewide Public Services (Agricultural Experiment Station, Extension Service, and Forest Research Lab). The Director also collaborates with University Relations and Marketing to support College-based communication needs. By being thoroughly familiar with the missions and goals of the College and of the University, the Director assures that messages from the College reflect the values and priorities of CAS and OSU.

The person in this position also serves as a brand manager, which includes collaborating with University Marketing to support, guide, and enforce brand management and serving as a trusted and accessible resource for CAS colleagues.

The Director is committed to enhancing diversity, fostering equity, and creating an inclusive community.

With over 3,000 students, 280 professorial faculty, and exceeding $160 million per year in expenditures, the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) is a complex organization. In addition to the main campus, CAS has faculty-located Branch Experiment Stations in 13 agroecozones across the state and Extension Faculty in each county. CAS is well known for its collaborations among state and federal agencies. Our researchers and Extension faculty work closely with agency partners in EPA, USDA ARS, USGS, US Forest Service, US Navy, USDOE, NIH, NOAA, NMFS, USFWS, as well as state agencies, local governments, and professional organizations. CAS supports faculty in the College of Veterinary Medicine, College of Health, and the Chemistry, Microbiology, and Statistics departments in the College of Science.

Regional industries and commodity groups are also important partners. Oregon’s remarkable agricultural diversity, with more than 220 commercial commodities, means that many commodity groups depend on OSU research and development to improve their varieties and expand their markets.
