What We've Done
As Xavier's campus continues to grow and evolve so does the need to share with our visitors, community, prospective students and alumni the positive impact the new buildings and space have on the lives of our faculty, administrators and students. The new campus map, made available to campus departments who need them, highlights the recent construction and makes it easier for those coming to campus to best locate where they are need to go including parking, accessibility and directions.
Road to Xavier web site
Mostly recently hailed by CASE, the Council for the Advancement and Support for Education, as the 2009 Grand Gold Award winner in the web site category for Best Individual Web Site during their annual Circle of Excellence Awards. The Road to Xavier serves as the Office of Undergraduate Admission's central communication and engagement network for all admitted students. It's robust social networking, reporting and interactive features have made it a staple of the admission recruitment cycle to support yield efforts.
Offering a much different experience for those interested in watching Xavier send out hundreds of new graduates set to create a better world, the 2012 Commencement was a first in many was for Xavier. Streamed live and viewed by over 1,000 unique individuals, this year's graduation ceremony was complete with student videos, Tweets, photos on Instagram and more.
Annual Fund Campaign
In winter 2010, Xavier's offices for the Annual Fund and Alumni collaborated with University Communications to design a unique campaign to enhance the engagement and donations of Xavier's alumni and friends. Deemed as the most comprehensive campaign to date, the Winter appeal included traditional print pieces but really leveraged social media and the sharing of stories and insights to engage our alumni in a very new way. The result: a sweeping increase in terms of alumni engagement on the web and an increase over the previous year for dollars raised.
Named as the 2008, Best Magazine by the Jesuit Advancement Administrators, Xavier's quarterly University Magazine is created to engage, educate, and excite Xavier's community and friends. From academic experiences to alumni success, the Xavier Magazine is certainly one of the most popular publications that the University produces.
