Niagara University student viewbook earns national award


Thu, Mar 2nd 2017 03:30 pm

The power of Niagara University's undergraduate viewbook was apparent to a national panel of higher education marketers, advertising creative directors, marketing and advertising professionals.

NU's undergraduate student recruitment publication - the centerpiece of its "Power of Niagara University" branding campaign, launched last fall - received a gold medal in the Student Viewbook category of the Higher Education Marketing Report's 32nd annual Educational Advertising Awards, the largest educational advertising awards competition in the country.

Niagara University's office of communications collaborated with Creative Communications Associates on the redesign of its admissions materials.

The new messaging was developed through a collaborative, yearlong brand initiative, and is built on strengths of the university outlined in the process by students, alumni, faculty, staff and administration, as well as individuals in the community.

Through the brand study and analysis, the strengths of the university were clearly identified in areas related to academics, service, global awareness and the connectedness of the Niagara community. Further development of messaging built "The Power of Niagara University" on five brand chapters:

•A coveted 21st-century degree. It's an education that delivers exactly what employers and the world are looking for, and what makes a Niagara degree a coveted 21st-century credential.

•Mentors for the mind and heart. NU faculty members are at the forefront of scholarship and research and engage students in these opportunities as freshmen - unheard of at many larger institutions. The goal is helping students realize their fullest potential to be the best they can be so that they can give their best to the world.

•Beyond the Ridge. Graduates who go on to do well for themselves and others; global citizens who are world ready.

•World ready. NU students, faculty and staff ignite positive change in the lives of others in the community and around the world.

•Purple Pride. Purple Pride is a state of mind. NU's Vincentian heritage calls members to strive for excellence and humility - and it's evident in the way people celebrate and takes pride in everything and everyone here.

The chapters align with the set of "President's Vision Commitments," or long-term institutional priorities, presented last spring by the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University.

The Educational Advertising Awards is the largest, oldest and most respected educational advertising awards competition in the country.

This year, more than 2,250 entries were received from over 1,000 colleges, universities and secondary schools from all 50 states and several foreign countries.
