Audience Messages

While the brand platform articulates our core values and provides us a way to focus our communications around a common ideal, not all target audiences share the same perceptions of the college. Our audience groups range from prospective students and parents to faculty, staff and alumni. Our audiences are internal and external, local and global.

The first step in effective communications is to know and understand the audience with which you are communicating. By thoroughly understanding our audience we are able to fully shape our message to meet their needs and be authentic. The following messages have been developed based on solid research with each of these audiences. Therefore, they are grounded in both current beliefs and future expectations, lending immediate credibility.

Our message strategy moves us from one in which we emphasized facts and figures of the past and present to one built on tilling the Le Moyne College story focused on Jesuit values, cutting-edge thinking and meaningful success. This strategy positions Le Moyne as a progressive leader helping to develop the whole person for success in all aspects of life.
