The what's what...

About the Episode: Addressing the mental health needs on our campuses is pivotal to ensuring success for both our students and those who work at our institutions. Once we create the plan to address the needs, how do we effectively communicate the work? During this episode, listeners will:

  • Learn how Kent State University expanded mental health resources and services across an eight-campus system and an international campus.

  • Engage in discussion on developing effective marketing strategies for a comprehensive mental health campaign.

  • Apply practical examples from lessons learned through the lens of both a marketing professional and a student affairs senior administrator.

About the Show:  We hear it every day across campuses: “We need to be working more collaboratively.” The higher education industry is notoriously siloed, with colleagues struggling to connect, duplicating services or having disjointed messaging.

Breaking Silos aims to showcase the remarkable work of marketing professionals and their non-marketing colleagues from different departments across campus, who come together to achieve common goals, implement new initiatives, enhance the student experience, and foster better collaboration among teams.

Each episode features a marketer and their non-marketing colleague to talk about their partnership. This unique format will inspire marketers to try new things and connect with colleagues in new ways, while also allowing non-marketing professionals an inside look at some of the most collaborative projects in higher education marketing.
