The University of Indianapolis has received national recognition from the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals (AMCP) and Council for the Advancement and Support of Education Region V (CASE V) for the institution’s communications and marketing efforts, including a new website and redesigned magazine.

The MarCom honors include a Platinum Award for the University of Indianapolis website (category: digital media and website – industry); a Platinum Award for “Portico” (category: print media/publication – higher education) and a Gold Award for the explore.uindy.edu microsite (digital media and website – higher education). Nearly 6,500 entries from across the USA, Canada and more than 20 other countries participated, and the award-winning UIndy.edu website competed with all industries. The University also received two MarCom Awards in 2017.

The University of Indianapolis received the Silver Award for CASE V: Best Recruitment Website or Microsite for the UIndy.edu redesign and three Hermes Creative Awards earlier in 2018. See a complete list of honors here.
