The University of Montevallo is a school that’s unlike any other. As Alabama’s only public liberal-arts university, it’s far more affordable than other liberal-arts options in the state and presents an entirely different style of education from other in-state public universities. By its very nature, Montevallo attracts an incredibly diverse yet like-minded group of individuals who pursue careers in everything from the arts to business to science. The common thread among all of them is an unyielding spirit of individuality — a passion to create their own path instead of following those more commonly traveled.
The University Relations Office is the central communications office responsible for the overall direction and oversight for the University’s strategic marketing initiatives and tactical public-relations programs, designed to present the University to its multiple constituencies, internally and externally, fostering a climate of public and private support.
This office has central responsibility for coordinating communications with the media, and is responsible, in conjunction with the UM Police Department, for the University’s Emergency Communication Plan.
The University Relations Office supports the mission of the University by:
