There were 2,500 individual entries for the Circle of Excellence Program, representing 614 institutions. Overall, 171 colleges, universities, independent schools and nonprofit associations received 268 awards. The 2010-2011 recruitment poster features a student posed upside-down urging prospective undergraduates to “see things differently” at Clark, where the motto is “Challenge Convention. Change Our World.” Earlier this year, Clark was a winner in five marketing and communications categories in the 2011 CASE District I Communications Awards, including a Gold Award for the recruitment poster.
