UC earns three communications awards
The UC Communications team has won three District VII awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), a national professional association that recognizes best practices in outreach, marketing and communications and development at educational institutions.
The UC team received gold medals for two of its 2010 efforts:
- the Global Green Award video, a video showcasing the achievements that earned UC an environmental leadership award from Global Green USA, and
- the print collateral it produced for Intersegmental Advocacy Day, a joint effort among UC, California State University and community colleges to educate Sacramento lawmakers about the importance of funding public higher education.
The team also won a bronze medal in web design for the Honorary Degrees Website, a site dramatizing the stories of Japanese American students taken from their UC studies to internment camps during World War II, who were later awarded honorary degrees.
Staff working on the projects included Larissa Branin, Kate Brown, Vanessa Correa, Katherine Edwards, Donna Hemmila, Kirill Mazin, Harry Mok and Nick Strayer.
Experts in several disciplines judged entries in more than 70 categories. In its three categories, UC competed with entries from more than 50 institutions in the Western states, including Stanford, Brigham Young and UC campuses.
The Honorary Degrees website and Intersegmental Advocacy Day print collateral were previously recognized with gold awards by the University & College Designers Association in a national competition of 1,300 entrants.
