Continuing and Extended Education at The University of Texas at Austin wins two national awards for marketing and promotion of programs

AUSTIN, Texas—Two national awards recognizing outstanding creativity in marketing and promotional materials have been awarded to the Division of Continuing and Extended Education at The University of Texas at Austin.

The division’s institutional marketing poster entitled, “UT for You, Too,” won a silver award and a companion “UT4U2” logo won a bronze award in the 2003 Marketing and Publications Awards of Excellence Program sponsored by the University Continuing Education Association (UCEA).

Jean Martin, marketing manager for the Division of Continuing and Extended Education, will accept the awards on March 29 at the UCEA annual conference in Chicago.

“Our division is often better known across the state than in our own community,” said Tom Hatfield, dean of Continuing and Extended Education. “We created the ‘UT4U2’ campaign to help us inform our markets about the unique ways in which we extend the resources of the university to students and non-students, both on and off campus.”

Hatfield and his staff are leading providers of innovative offerings in continuing education that include on-line distance education courses, the university’s Migrant Student Graduation Enhancement Program, University Charter School, Third Age University for learning in retirement, evening extension classes and professional development certification and training.

The winning poster and logo, which were among 300 entries in the UCEA competition, were a collaborative effort spearheaded by Ramona Kelly, writer and communications coordinator for Continuing and Extended Education; David Grosvenor, an Austin art director and graphic designer; and Eric Hollister, marketing coordinator for the division’s evening credit classes.
