Brand Platform – Opportunity in Every Direction
The brand platform is intended to describe our organization: its mission, values, and brand promise. Our platform articulates our brand vision: the way we see ourselves and would like to be seen. The platform can be used to shape your communications in broad strokes, but is not meant to be copied word-for-word. It is meant for internal use.
Opportunity in every direction. What this means is a university that responds to the realities of the world. We are deeply dedicated to this place, and we are innovating and implementing solutions to our local challenges that will have global reach. Like our core values, this statement helps establish a consistent foundation that underlies all of our communications.
This strategy consists of the following key elements:
The exemplar who makes discovery possible.
From my new vantage point, I know where I want to go, and I have what it takes to get there.
From mentorship to partnership, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Message maps visually frame key messages in a concise format. Maps convey the brand promise through compelling, relevant messages from university divisions and target each audience segment.
