Agencies will be expected to aid in the College’s short-term objective to continue developing their current “Accelerate Your Future” brand campaign. The PCC Foundation campaign is a new construction building set to break ground in September of this year. The new building will provide space for Pitt Community College’s Student Development Services and Institutional Advancement divisions.

Agencies should further consider these key advertising and media elements for the “Accelerate Your Future” campaign:

  • Geared mostly toward high school students/parents/guidance counselors and adults 25+ years old
  • Must maintain focus on student recruitment and institutional recognition
  • Should utilize channels in institutional ads, publications, strategic plan documents and student recruitment programs

Agencies will additionally serve to sustain their long-term brand image goals that support their mission to “educate and empower people for success“. Advertising plans will need to develop quickly to promote PCC’s Spring 2022 registration period, beginning October 2021 and going through early January 2022.

Finally, the intent of the advertising and marketing efforts is to create awareness of the successes of PCC. The resulting action would be the attraction of quality students and faculty, support from alumni, friends and business, and an increase in financial support.
