Southern Oregon University has announced that Nicolle Aleman will join the University’s staff as director of marketing. Aleman, a 2001 graduate of SOU, brings with her a decade of marketing experience, most recently at the Bishop Ranch commercial real estate development in San Ramon, Calif.

There Aleman worked closely with several Fortune 500 and 100 companies while executing integrated marketing programs designed to build brand awareness and foster a sense of community among Bishop Ranch’s tenant base.

“Southern Oregon University is a great institution with a long and storied history and I’m very pleased to be able to continue my professional career where I enjoyed earning an education,” Aleman said. “I am fully committed to SOU’s mission of dedication to student success, intellectual growth, and responsible global citizenship.” 

Aleman returns to Ashland with her husband and 18-month-old son.
