Our brand is much more than logos and colors. It is a story, a collection of experiences, impressions and perceptions. Our brand is what we stand for, and how we distinguish ourselves.
Our brand is, in short, both a promise and an expectation:
We are a supportive community that works together to achieve excellence.
This expectation of excellence sets the bar high. We are a place of many stories, many groups, and many missions. We strive to uphold the promise that is our brand in every story we tell and in all of the ways that we tell it.
With a great brand comes great responsibility.
The Office of Medical Public Affairs is responsible for guiding and strengthening our brand; however, no single group defines it. Every member of our community – faculty, staff, students, trainees and alumni – contributes to shaping and upholding our collective story.
We reiterate and refine our brand every time we identify ourselves as WashU – from the services we provide and the tweets we post, to the signs we erect and the websites we launch.
