Parkland College’s Marketing and Public Relations team provides in-house creative, strategy, and budget management.

Background:

Parkland College is a community college serving Community College District 505. Parkland College enrolls approximately 20,000 students annually. The campus is a melting pot of student life, with diverse cultures, students ranging in age from 16 to 86, and a growing international student presence. About 75 percent of our students live and work within District 505. Parkland College’s location in Champaign, Illinois provides the amenities and excitement of a larger city with small-town conveniences. Champaign is the fastest growing city in Illinois, with a long list of opportunities for our residents and short commute times.

Parkland College offers academic programs that prepare students to transfer to a four-year university, career and technical education, workforce and business training, continuing education for adults, youth programs, and more. Parkland is No. 1 in student transfers to the University of Illinois, a top research university in Champaign-Urbana.
