Student-Run Services

Within the WUSA Brand lives the Student-Run Services sub brand. The Services’ brands hold the same Brand Purpose, Brand Goal, Values, and Brand Story as the WUSA main brand; however, the Services’ branding guides include individual elements specific to each Service offered and appeals to a much more targeted audience.

The goal of having the WUSA brand recognizable and identifiable across all Student-Run Services is to increase the awareness of all the Services WUSA provides for students and to ensure students do not confuse WUSA Services services with those that the University Admin offers students.

Students are more likely to approach these much-needed services if they know they are interacting with other students than if they assumed it was staffed with university employees who may struggle to relate to students.

This also provides a clear guideline to the creative student staff and volunteers who are responsible for supporting marketing and communications efforts.
