Minnesota State Centers of Excellence

Problem: In 2008, the Legislature provided funding to create “Centers of Excellence” hosted by individual Minnesota State colleges and universities with a responsibility for developing the workforce pipeline in key industries: Agriculture (northern and southern), Energy, Engineering, Healthcare, IT, Manufacturing, and Transportation.

Despite key relationships with industry and faculty, by 2014 there was still a lack of awareness about the existence of the Centers – or how they related to each other.

Solution: Working with The Design Company, I helped develop a brand identity, website and a communications strategy for boosting awareness of the signature work the Centers do around “Engaging Industry. Enhancing Education.
