Dear Members of the Campus Community,

What do we make true at Puget Sound every day, with every encounter?

Answering this question is at the heart of the work of a Brand Refresh Advisory Committee that was formed in Nov. 2020 to update the university’s brand messages. These are the messages that help us most clearly and succinctly communicate what Puget Sound is all about. We have audited our communications across the university, reviewed research, compared Puget Sound to peers, conducted interviews, and now we’d like to hear from you.

Please join us for a virtual town hall meeting, where we’ll review the project, share our findings, and seek your input.

Monday, March 1, noon–1 p.m.
Zoom Link

We hope you can join us.
