Ag Communications Project Planner

Section 1 - Introduction

Agricultural Communications (Ag Comm) is the central communications unit of the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. Our team of experts will work with you to communicate effectively with your intended audience.

Once your request has been submitted, the completion date will be based on a variety of factors (job type, project size, approval process, workload, etc.). Estimated lead times are provided at the bottom of this page for planning purposes.

Project requests should be approved by your unit manager prior to submission.

If you have questions about this process, please contact Dan Nonte, interim director of Ag Comm, at or (336) 285-4709. If you have questions regarding the submission system or are having difficulty submitting your request, please contact Kevin Lupo at or (336) 285-4722

Do you need to check the status of a project you've already submitted? Visit the Project Retrieval System and look it up with your ticket number.
