Judges for the EDMAs consisted of a national panel of higher education marketers, advertising creative directors, marketing and advertising professionals and the editorial board of HEMR.
"Because we see their work every day, sometimes it's easy to forget how talented our staff is at SRU. These awards take on greater significance because they were earned while competing against work that in many cases was produced for institutions by professional agencies. I'm incredibly proud of the entire team's contributions to taking our products to a higher level," said Rita Abent, chief communication and public affairs officer.
