Loyola's Office of Marketing and Communications recognized by education council

Loyola press release - January 25, 2010

The Office of Marketing and Communications at Loyola University New Orleans has recently been recognized for excellence in its work by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, District III. The office received three awards from CASE for the following projects:

  • Montage Calendar, submitted by the Office of Creative Services – Award of Excellence
  • Crisis Communication Plan, submitted by the Office of Public Affairs and External Relations – Award of Excellence
  • President’s Annual Report (2008), submitted by the Office of Creative Services – Special Merit Award

Terry Fisher, associate vice president for Marketing and Communications, said the recognition, while welcome, comes as no surprise to her because of the quality of work the teams consistently produce.

“I am proud that the quality of work this team produces every day is being given its due, but what I’m really happy about is that we are helping the university achieve its goals in a dynamic way,” Fisher said.

Award of Excellence winners will be recognized at the Feb. 23 awards event at the CASE III Conference – INGENUITY CASE III, in Tampa, Fla. CASE District III advances and supports educational and professional institutions in the Southeast by enhancing the effectiveness of alumni relations, fund raising, communications, marketing and other advancement professionals who serve them.

The Montage Fine and Performing Arts Series Calendar is an annual listing of Loyola’s visual and performing arts events presented by the College of Music and Fine Arts. The calendar is intended to be a visually interesting, yet easy to read piece that showcases the world-renowned artists and university groups that perform at the university throughout the year. The Montage Calendar is also a finalist for the Grand Award. The piece is compiled and produced in-house by Mary Degnan, publications manager, and Sean Snyder, marketing and public relations manager.

The Crisis Communication Plan outlines communication procedures for the university during emergency situations. The plan’s purpose is to quickly and factually inform the campus community about unfolding or potential emergencies, provide protective action guidance if needed, minimize fears and rumors, and restore order and confidence in the university. The plan was developed by Meredith Hartley, director of public affairs; with contributions from Catherine Koppel, associate director of public affairs; James Shields, communications coordinator; and Sean Snyder, marketing and public relations manager.

The President’s Annual Report serves as a tool to capture and promote special programs and offerings, student successes, faculty achievements, notable alumni and facility updates and provides a snapshot of university revenues and expenses. The annual report included contributions from Terrell Fisher, associate vice president of marketing; Ray Willhoft, publications editor; Harold Baquet, university photographer; and Craig Bloodworth, freelance designer.
