Episcopal Divinity School Receives Award for Rebranding Efforts

CAMBRIDGE, MA, January 29, 2013—This week the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District 1 will celebrate its excellence and achievement awards at its annual conference in Boston. Among those recognized this year is Episcopal Divinity School, which received a bronze excellence award for its rebranding efforts in the publications package category.

CASE District I is the regional chapter of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education representing the northeastern United States and eastern Canada and annually bestows its Excellence Awards on individuals and schools doing innovative work in the fields of special events, fundraising, stewardship, volunteer engagement, alumni relations, student alumni initiatives, advancement services, and communications.

Jeffrey Perkins, director of communications and marketing at EDS, and Sarah Henderson, principal at Sarah Caitlin Design Studio, were named on the award, which recognized the work this team has done to build a coherent set of print materials for EDS over the past year. A sample of the materials is available for view on Sarah Caitlin Design Studio website and includes materials developed for admissions and recruitment, as well as other needs throughout the school.

“I am honored to receive this award on EDS’s behalf. These materials were produced as a team effort between communications and marketing, institutional advancement, with a special collaboration with Rachel Shelton, director of admissions and recruitment. Our work was guided by a strategic goal that names the rebranding project as a key step to advancing EDS’s visibility and I am thrilled that the project was recognized by CASE District 1 with this award,” said Perkins.

EDS’s rebranding efforts will continue to be rolled out throughout the coming year.

Episcopal Divinity School was founded in 1974 from a merger of Philadelphia Divinity School (founded 1857) and Episcopal Theological School (founded 1867). Located just outside Harvard Square, EDS is a member of the Boston Theological Institute, a consortium of ten eminent theological schools, seminaries, and departments of religion.
