National TV Spot Debuts Saturday, Highlighting University's Mission
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas' new 30-second television spot, "Determined," will debut nationally as a part of the Razorbacks' season opener against Eastern Illinois. The game will be televised by the SEC Network with kickoff set for 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, at the newly renovated Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The video utilizes the university's recently developed unifying messaging themes to reinforce the U of A's mission and value.
"Sharing the university's story starts with better understanding of who we are, what we do and why it matters and that's what this spot is designed to do," said Mark Rushing, assistant vice chancellor for university relations. "The subtle influence of the unifying messaging themes on other university communications efforts will become more apparent later this fall. And I'd like to point out that the larger unifying messaging effort isn't reserved for the university's core communicators, everyone can help. We are all ambassadors for the University of Arkansas, and we all play an important part in communicating our purpose and value."
The "Determined" spot was produced by the executive productions team, a part of University Relations' creative services unit.
