“Awards like these are a true indicator of the great work we’re all doing as a University,” said Ian C. Dunne, Director of Communications and Marketing. “We’re able to produce a lot of quality content because of all the wonderful people we have to work with and stories we have to share.”

“Like film work, winning these Tellys was a collaborative effort of many people and departments across our campus,” said Christopher J. Newman, Digital Media Coordinator. “The videos we produce only show a fraction of the hard work and contributions of so many people we have the pleasure of working with.”
