This campaign has been an in-class marketing internship sponsored by University Park Alliance with funding from a HUD grant.

They have researched, planned, designed, implemented and evaluated all aspects of the integrated marketing communication plan.

We hope you will be able to join us as we reveal what went well, what could have been done better, and what we've learned along the way. We are excited to show University Park Alliance, their guests, and the faculty, staff and students how our campaign has impacted brand awareness of the University Park area.
