Choosing your audience
Our primary audience for most communications includes prospective students—driven, passionate individuals who believe in their ability to change the world. But we also communicate with current students, parents, alumni and other internal and external constituents. Identifying your primary audience will be critical in developing an effective communication strategy.
Our team can help you identify your audience(s) and decide on the most effective means of reaching them.
