Visual Marketing Specialist

Las Cruces, NM

New Mexico State University (NMSU), New Mexico’s flagship land-grant and space-grant institution, and the NMSU Foundation seek a highly-collaborative, thoughtful, and entrepreneurial professional to serve as Visual Marketing Specialist. The Visual Marketing Specialist will join a dedicated advancement team, contributing to the Foundation’s growth, and will play a critical role in identifying opportunities to support NMSU community impact, especially for students and faculty. The Visual Marketing Specialist will oversee all visual marketing projects through from concept to development to post-production and delivery. This is a wonderful opportunity for an accomplished professional to help raise philanthropy at NMSU to the next level and join a vibrant community.

For the NMSU community, private philanthropic support is vital to increased accessibility. The recently-completed Ignite Aggie Discovery Campaign, the largest in the university’s history, raised over $125 million across three distinct pillars – student discovery, faculty and staff discovery, and NMSU achievement. Of the total, $39 million was dedicated for student support, and $56 million was raised for programmatic and research support. With an endowment of over $230 million, NMSU and the NMSU Foundation have a massive opportunity to raise even more for student, faculty, and community success. 

Critical to the continuation and growth of NMSU’s impact, the University will rely on talented, motivated development leaders to amplify its fundraising and broader Aggie community engagement strategies. To develop and execute an ambitious growth plan, NMSU is looking to attract professionals with the unique balance of success, authenticity, and passion for the New Mexico community.

Ideal candidates will be dedicated, hard-working, and curious. A personal and professional commitment to valuing the differences in who we are, what we’ve experienced, and how we think, is vital. Excellent organizational skills in addition to superior verbal, written and interpersonal skills are essential.
