Fast Company: Brands That Matter Content Package
Purdue has been chosen as a member of Fast Company’s inaugural class of Brands That Matter. Even better, we are the only higher education institution to make the list. This is serving all of our audiences, particularly alumni, because it brings more value to their degree, and prospective students, because it proves to them that Purdue is a place to be and the best place for them to take their next giant leap.
With Purdue being chosen as the only higher education institution on the inaugural list of Brands That Matter, it provides an opportunity for all campus partners to share and engage with their audience. This includes colleges, schools, units, centers, and initiatives alike as the content is relevant to all corners of campus. As a part of our promotional plan, we’ll be repurposing existing content under three different brand themes: persistence, innovation and togetherness. Presenting this content will shine a brighter light on our storytelling, reasoning for being chosen and our brand essence. It can also be a point of pride for all our audiences.
This content is evergreen but we’d suggest sharing during the month of November to further amplify the university’s strategy and engagement.
