The marketing department at University College of Syracuse University has won six national awards in the 2006 University Continuing Education Association (UCEA) Marketing and Publications Awards Competition. These awards are given for excellence in marketing campaigns and publications produced by U.S. colleges and universities. University College (UC) collected more awards than any other organization in its category, which encompasses continuing education colleges with fewer than 25,000 students.
The awards are:
The awards are being presented at the UCEA’s annual conference in San Diego April 9-12. The Best in Show award winner will also be announced and presented at a conference luncheon. University College will have four representatives at the conference: Interim Dean Bea Gonzalez, Associate Dean Robert Colley, Associate Dean Geraldine de Berly and Rosemary Kelly, associate director of student administrative services and manager of UC’s bursar and registration office.
UCEA was founded in 1915 and is the leading professional organization for college and university continuing and professional education, with 430 institutions and more than 200 members in 16 countries.
“Once again, UC has proven it can compete with the best in the country and emerge a winner,” says Colley, who directs the marketing department. “This year was the best year yet for us in the UCEA awards competition, and we are especially proud of the fact that all of our creative work is done in-house, rather than through outside agencies. University College is truly outstanding when it comes to creativity in marketing.”
The award-winning UC team includes designers Elizabeth Serafini and Catherine Wenthen; writers Lois Gridley and Mary Beth Horsington; associate director of marketing Laurie McCarthy; production coordinator Karen Nadolski; Web content manager Martha Zvonik; administrative specialist Allison Vincent; and office assistants Mary Hartley and Jill Tanner.
