NEW! In an effort to improve our user experience, multiple processes have been consolidated into one new form! Tell us about the events, programs, resources, or student services you need help promoting and what type of graphic design support you may need in our new marketing request form. After you've submitted, we'll help design any promotional materials you may need and post to the appropriate channels!

The DVC calendar is one of the best ways to promote events to students, employees, and external audiences. Tell us about your upcoming event using the form; we'll get it on our calendar and send you a link you can share with faculty, staff, and students! The marketing team typically reviews and publishes events on Fridays. We recommend submitting events as early as possible, as people's schedules fill up fast!
Our monthly events newsletter helps current students learn about important DVC services and stay up-to-date with what's happening on campus. It contains important dates, college-wide announcements, and information about upcoming performances, workshops, and events. If the information you submit in our marketing request form applies to the majority of students, we'll include it in an upcoming newsletter! For the current publication schedule and past issues, see our Newsletter page.
The marketing team maintains the primary Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn channels for DVC. These are great outlets to engage students and the community. Events, important dates and deadlines, and on-campus activities are just some of the many things we promote on these accounts.
Please note: the marketing team does not recommend creating social accounts for individual departments/programs. Social media is a great way to engage and inform students about your college department and/or program, but building a following and maintaining social accounts is a lot of work. You cannot expect immediate results and you could be spending many hours creating content that very few people are reading. If you are thinking about creating or currently have social media accounts for your department and/or program, please read our Social Media Guidelines.
The college has several digital display monitors across the campus where important information for students and upcoming events are posted. These are great ways to promote events and services to internal audiences like current students and employees. Please note that class promotions can only be displayed on monitors in the discipline's area.
The marketing team displays events and important information to internal audiences on InSite through banners. Note: there are a limited number of banner spaces available. Banners can be published for one or all three audiences – faculty, staff, students.
The centerpiece of Diablo Valley College's journalism program is the award-winning, student-run newspaper The Inquirer. The Inquirer online publishes—and posts to social media—new articles on a biweekly basis, distributed to students and faculty through a campus-wide "DVC Headlines" newsletter. The Inquirer's print edition restarted in fall 2022 and appears monthly with a circulation of 2,000.
If you have an interesting story to share, an event coming up, or news about projects or people who deserve attention, please contact advisor Michael Levitin to see about including it in an upcoming edition.
Bulletin boards are managed by the Student Life Office. The maximum size for bulletin board requests is 11”x17”. There are ten boards on campus. Contact Todd Farr for more information.
The marketing department does not submit or fund print jobs for other departments. If we partner on a graphic design project, you will receive final files to send to the printshop using your department's GL.
The DVC Marketing Department is small but mighty. We focus on enrollment objectives for the college at-large. Due to scale that means we market programs, not classes. Even so, we know you need support. Visit our Class Promotion Guide to learn how to get the word out about your classes.
