The USC Communicators Network (formerly known as the IMC Network) is open to all faculty and staff with communications and marketing responsibilities both within USC Columbia and throughout the entire USC system.


The Communicators Network is a bi-monthly forum designed to keep the University of South Carolina's campus communicators current on the latest integrated marketing and communications initiatives while also providing an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with campus peers. The network will also provide online resources for up-to-date communications information and develop periodic programming for discipline-focused sub-groups.

The Communicators Network will:

  • help build a strong, distinctive brand for the University of South Carolina;
  • provide a critical venue for sharing up-to-date information about university branding, integrated marketing and communications initiatives;
  • offer valuable presentations and contemporary speakers on topics critical to communicators including the importance of brand strategies, marketing communications planning, social media trends, web standards and public relations;
  • assist in the dissemination of consistent marketing messages to target audiences;
  • provide an opportunity for collaborative sharing of successful ideas, resources, best practices and communication strategies.
