Good work recognized

Memorial University was recently recognized for its outstanding work in its communications and marketing activities.

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District I announced the winners in its annual communications awards competition and Memorial was awarded a gold in the annual reports category for Research Report 2008: Haystacks; an honourable mention in the same category for President's Report 2007 – Achievements and Transformations; and a bronze in the advertising category for its Amazing Students campaign.

Victoria Collins, executive director of the division of Marketing and Communications which co-ordinated the three projects, praised the teams that helped put these endeavours together.

“These are awards are no small feats when you consider the world-class calibre of many of the institutions in eastern Canada and the northeastern U.S. that comprise the membership of CASE District I,” she said.

The awards are emblematic of the high-quality work that the division executes in partnership with its various clients across the university, added Ms. Collins. In these award-winning projects, MarComm worked closely with the Office of the Vice-President (Research), Student Affairs and Services, and the Office of the President, among others.

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is the professional organization for those working in alumni relations, communications, fundraising, marketing and other institutional advancement areas. Its membership includes nearly 3,400 colleges, universities, independent elementary and secondary schools, and educational associates in 60 countries around the world.
