Stamats Inc.

615 Fifth Street SE, P.O. Box 1888

Cedar Rapids, IA 52406-1888

(800) 553-8878


Integration is more than a buzzword to us. We live it. We breathe it. It inspires and guides everything we do. Some companies offer only research; others offer only creative. But why would anyone want a company that uses only half its brain? At Stamats, we thoughtfully marry the two and offer our clients a comprehensive array of innovative products and services across North America, India and elsewhere in Asia. Our industry-leading research and insightful strategic counsel lay the foundation for compelling creative and digital solutions.

The result is a left-brain/right-brain approach to problem solving that sets the standard for holistic higher education marketing. We continually look inside and outside higher education for concepts and ideas we believe our clients would value, and we enjoy providing fresh, creative thinking on critical issues and sharing those insights with others in the profession. For example, we were the first to explore how integrated marketing communications could be adapted to higher education.
