"A substantial and timely contribution. What Flannery is attempting to define and give voice to may be lifesaving for some institutions."

"This book is deeply authentic, honest, and at times courageous in making its case for attention and investment in marketing for higher education. Flannery offers a balanced blend of broad overview and specific detail across several elements, practices, challenges, and innovations in integrated marketing. Some readers may find the book therapeutic in its real, highly relatable, and strikingly accurate look at the attitudes, obstacles, and opportunities that underpin marketing in higher education."

"Teresa Flannery has produced a gem of a book for campus marketing officers, college presidents and deans, and even faculty members who view marketing with skepticism. In jargon-free prose, Flannery explains the precepts and rationale for many marketing practices and draws on her own successful experience at both public and private institutions. The book's practical, down-to-earth focus, replete with examples, will galvanize every reader's thinking about effective promotion of the campus."

"How to Market a University is a blueprint for higher education marketing strategy, which, as Flannery states clearly, should be unified with institutional strategy. She persuasively explains why institutions that have yet to expand their traditional public-information–style communications offices will lag behind those that have embraced integrated marketing, anchored in research for authenticity."

A must-read for senior leaders in higher education."
