that leveraged the brand’s unique positioning and promise to prospective adult students. A collection of UMGC’s commercials, including our 2022 brand spots, can be viewed here
and more information may be found on the university’s website. For those who are brand aware, metrics indicate a positive consumer response to the brand and the University plans to grow its portfolio of advertising and marketing assets.
