Promoting Excellence in Communications

Maroon & Gold Awards are presented annually to University of Minnesota Communicators Forum members whose work exemplifies the University’s core values: excellence, innovation, effectiveness, integrity, diversity, collaboration, sharing of knowledge, accountability, stewardship, and service.

The awards highlight the significant role that communicators play in shaping the relationship between the University and its constituents: students and their parents; staff and faculty; alumni and donors; colleagues in higher education; leaders of business, industry, and civic life; legislators; and the general public. Projects must successfully demonstrate timely, targeted, credible and effective messages combined with the most compelling concept, format, design, and materials.

By promoting high standards, the awards program encourages the interpretive, analytical, integrative, and creative skills necessary to the communicator’s task. In their organizations, communicators must be both authoritative and collaborative, as necessary. They are thinkers and doers whose work collectively supports the University’s primary mission.
