Advancement & Community Engagement

The Southwestern College Office of Advancement & Community Engagement (ACE) includes marketing, communications, development/foundation, alumni relations, grants and special events. 

The marketing and communications team is responsible for building and maintaining the integrity of the Southwestern College name, brand, image, and voice. It is also responsible for overseeing district-wide communications, marketing efforts, creative services, special events, and the latest news on the College, its programs, activities, faculty, staff, and students. The SWC Foundation supports the college through community partnerships, alumni connections, and donors who want to make a difference. 

Our ultimate goal is student success. Collectively, we will work to enhance awareness of the college, build community engagement and support for students.

To maintain a consistent image and voice of the College, we will provide our faculty and staff with a variety of services listed below. Please fill out a Promotion Request Form for these services.
