New Brand Campaign Shines Light on University’s Stellar Status
A comprehensive new brand campaign will illuminate the remarkable growth and research achievements at The University of Texas at Dallas to local, national and even global audiences.
Launched in early June, the “At the Speed of Bright” campaign highlights UT Dallas as one of the fastest-growing research universities in the country. Ads underscoring the University’s stellar academic reputation and rapid growth over its first 50 years will appear on digital billboards along major highways, in airports, on social media channels and in print advertising.
UT Dallas President Richard C. Benson said the new tagline encapsulates the University’s mission and will invigorate awareness in the community.
“We have tremendously talented, smart students and dedicated faculty and staff who enrich our university. This campaign honors each of them while simultaneously promoting our reputation as one of the foremost research institutions in the state,” said Benson, who is the Eugene McDermott Distinguished University Chair of Leadership.
