The Marketing, Communication and Engagement (MCE) team provides top-class marketing, engagement, and communication strategy and delivery. We build the University of Reading's reputation and brand and help to deliver robust, global student recruitment campaigns that are underpinned by comprehensive research and market insight.
MCE Partnership agreement and service catalogue
These working documents have been developed to present both a high-level overview and a detailed breakdown of the full and broad portfolio of work for which MCE is responsible. This includes both strategic activities, performed by MCE on behalf of the institution at an overarching University level, and details of the vast range of services available to access by Schools, Departments and professional functions.
Led by Marketing, Communications and Engagement Director Fiona Blair, MCE recently joined the Recruitment and Admissions and Campaigns and Supporter Engagement functions to form the University’s Advancement Group.
Access to our range of services will normally be via a nominated marketing business partner or marketing officer.
MCE is structured in teams based around sets of professional capabilities but we work collaboratively in matrix project groups that bring together the appropriate mix of expertise from across the function, as well as the rest of the Advancement Group, as each piece of work requires.
