What is the difference between a communication plan and a marketing/advertising strategy?

UCM creates and executes communication plans for our internal audiences: current students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The goal of a communication plan is to spread a message. 

We establish and employ marketing and advertising strategies to reach external or potential audiences, like prospective students or donors. There is an element of persuasion involved with marketing and advertising.
