Brand Architecture: Building an Enduring Brand

Most brand efforts start with a bang, then soon fade away. Why? Because too many institutions continue to focus on features and benefits to tell their story. In today’s hypercompetitive environment, colleges and universities need to do more.

Institutions need to discover — or, for many, rediscover — their core values. Once that happens, there is an enormous opportunity for elevating your message beyond the statistics, beyond the rankings, and beyond the athletic accomplishments.
