This spring, Worldstudio embarked on a project with Notre Dame’s Office of Public Affairs and Center for Social Concerns to assess the University’s community engagement efforts and how those efforts are being understood and perceived by key audiences.
Notre Dame is one of only 115 institutions of higher education recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as a leader in community engagement. Worldstudio is working with Notre Dame to strategize, coordinate and communicate its robust outreach efforts which, over many years, have grown organically from its Catholic identity and generate from many areas of the University.
Worldstudio launched the project by reviewing past research, current activities and messaging, followed by a series of focus groups and interviews with external and internal stakeholders. This led to a series of conclusions and recommendations that are currently under consideration by the University.
