advocacy marketing & communications
UCI is committed to telling the University Circle story through a variety of vehicles including lifelong learning and action-based advocacy that extend beyond conventional methods to reach a wider regional audience. Beginning in 2009, UCI expanded that commitment with the implementation of its destination marketing campaign, Find Yourself in the Circle, and the success of its events programming, and the expansion and development of its community education programs.
UCI continued its Find Yourself in the Circle marketing campaign by collaborating with institutions, such as The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Botanical Garden, and Cleveland Orchestra to develop television, radio, print, and digital advertising to reach millions throughout the region and beyond.
