AAVMC chooses University of Florida for 2017 Communications Excellence Award
The communications program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, led by Public Relations Director Sarah Carey, APR, has been recognized with the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges’ (AAVMC) 2017 Communications Excellence Award.
Florida’s communication program was reviewed and enhanced as part of a major institutional strategic planning program completed in 2014. The revamped program was tethered to the college’s 40th anniversary celebration and configured to support a major new college branding campaign themed “Challenge Accepted.”
“Communications excellence and institutional advancement go hand in hand,” said AAVMC Chief Executive Officer Dr. Andrew T. Maccabe. “We congratulate our colleagues at the University of Florida for earning this honor, and appreciate the role their work is playing in advancing the interests of all of us in academic veterinary medicine.”
The award includes a $1,000 honorarium, a commemorative and public recognition. It will be formally presented during the annual meeting of the Association of Veterinary Advancement Professionals (AVAP) on Thursday, July 20 at the Sheraton Indianapolis City Center Hotel in Indianapolis.
