Marketing and Recruitment
Marketing and Recruitment serves RCC by marketing college programs, events and opportunities and by coordinating recruitment activities in the local high schools. The department provides public information to the college and community and handles media relations. The department also functions as a marketing service center, a source of professional assistance in preparing college publications, scheduling promotions, and publicizing and planning events.
