The presentation, “University Brand: Beyond the Visual,” provided insight on how all three teams were able to successfully create a brand for continuing education while still maintaining their connection to the main university.

“Our team and our students are the reason we were able to have another successful year,” said Continuing Education Dean Barbara Calhoun. “These awards mean so much to us. We are truly honored to have UPCEA reward our hard work. It’s also great to have members from our college to represent this university and educate others on a national platform.”
