NJ Commission on Higher Education
The New Jersey Commission on Higher Education today announced the appointment of a Higher Education Marketing Leadership Team as part of its continuing work to implement the state’s long-range plan for higher education, A Blueprint for Excellence.
Comprised of business, higher education, and public sector leaders, the Marketing Leadership Team will develop a coordinated, multiyear public awareness campaign for New Jersey’s higher education system. The campaign will raise the visibility and augment the reputation of New Jersey’s colleges and universities, both within the state and across the nation.
“The image and reputation of the state’s higher education system directly affects how people and businesses view New Jersey as a place to live, work, and conduct business,” said Laurence M. Downes, chairman of the Commission on Higher Education and CEO of New Jersey Natural Resources Corporation. “The public awareness campaign is very important as we continue working to create a higher education system that is among the best in the world.”
The team will begin developing plans for the campaign at a retreat this spring. A first step will be a baseline public opinion/attitude survey against which the campaign’s progress over time will be measured.
A list of the team members follows:
Dr. Herbert Flamer, Team Chair, former Chair, Educational Opportunity
