Kennesaw State University’s first ever‚ corporate image campaign has been selected by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education as the 2004 Grand Award Recipient in Print Advertising.

The university’s historic corporate image campaign‚ launched in the summer of 2004‚ is designed to build awareness among the state’s business and political leaders of the high caliber of the university’s graduates. The Important Role Georgia Companies Play in Helping Educate Tomorrow’s Leaders is the message of this two−year−long campaign.

“The message in this innovative campaign challenges organizations and business leaders to partner with KSU to help graduate the next generation of leaders‚” said Director of University Relations Frances Weyand. “While Kennesaw State relies on state funding and student tuition for excellence in education‚ it’s the additional support of individuals and corporations that allows KSU to go the extra mile.”

First revealed to the public at a kickoff reception in August‚ the ad campaign was rolled out as a series of print advertisements that continue to appear in business publications throughout metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia. These ads feature four KSU alumni who credit their successful careers to the strong foundation of learning they gained at Kennesaw State University. Designed and produced by Point of Vision‚ an Atlanta firm that specializes in communications‚ the print ads are part of an overall strategic institutional marketing initiative aimed at garnering support from the business community.

“As a follow up to this initial series‚ a newly created set of ads featuring students is planned in the near future in an effort to continue providing the university a high−visibility context to support fundraising in the corporate community over the next year‚” said Weyand.

The new series is scheduled for rollout in March 2005.
