The #MakeManoaYours branding program that supports the recruitment and advancement for the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus received international recognition. The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), with members around the world, recently named UH Mānoa a bronze award winner of its 2017 Circle of Excellence awards program.
“We are honored to receive this recognition as it validates our vision by highlighting our campus and academic work through a creative lens.” said Roxie M. Shabazz, assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management. “We are at the beginning of a strategic journey to recruit a vibrant and prepared student body, and we have already made important improvements that prospective students and their families have noticed, and will ultimately experience.”
“A sense of place and an authentic voice are two main elements of this campaign,” said Jennel Sesoko, admissions relations manager. “The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is a beautiful and unique campus, rich in history. Make Mānoa Yours provides an opportunity to showcase our institution’s proud points, sharing with students the one-of-a-kind academic experiences found no place else in the world.”
In 2017, more than 715 higher education institutions, independent schools and nonprofits worldwide submitted more than 3,364 entries for consideration in nearly 100 categories. Judges gave 366 awards—118 bronze, 125 silver, 107 gold and 16 grand gold.
