A coming together of NC State communications professionals

Communications professionals from CALS Communications Services and University Communications will be working more closely together soon.  Literally.

The Creative Services Group and Web Communications from University Communications will be moving from their offices in the Creative Services Building into the Butler Communications Services Building on Friday, March 26.  For those who aren’t familiar with Butler, it is at 3210 Faucette Drive, across from the campus police station.  The facility was dedicated in April 1999 and is named after father and son Tait and Eugene Butler, prominent figures in the area of agricultural reform.  Both focused on careers in journalism and are known for their work as writers and editors of publications such as Progressive Farmer and Southern Living.

The move is designed to concentrate communications talent in one place.  More opportunities to share resources, and equipment, to collaborate and be creative, if you will.

The future of the Creative Services Building has yet to be determined, but with work starting soon on the new Talley Student Center renovation and expansion don’t be surprised if some of the more “delicate” items from Tally find temporary homes there.

The University Communications News Services group will remain at the Joyner Visitor Center, but discussions are under way to relocate the group to Butler in the future.  Stay tuned for more information about that move.

Though I don’t get to move to Butler with the group, I’m very excited about the new digs.  The Butler Communications Building was designed with communications in mind.  It features a bright, open reception area, several conference rooms, broadcast production facilities, a photo studio, broadcast editing suites, a distance learning classroom, offices, open work areas, lots of parking and more.  I think Tait and Eugene Butler would be proud.

Passion Rules!

    I share the excitement, Joe. I think the move will allow us to provide high quality communication services to the entire campus. We look forward to having Creative Services and Web Communications join us in Butler. I also believe that the Butlers would be proud.
