About

Established in 1987, Early Identification Program (EIP) serves as the college preparatory program of George Mason University. With over 1,000 students who have graduated from the program, EIP provides access to educational resources for middle and high school students who will be the first in their families to attend a college or university. 600 students are currently enrolled in EIP due to our strategic partnership with seven local public school systems in Northern Virginia. EIP works closely with public school division partners in the nomination, selection, and support of students each year. EIP inspires students to achieve their goal to attend and succeed at the higher education level. Our aim is to educate the whole student, providing year-round academic enrichment, personal and social development, civic engagement, and leadership training opportunities. EIP ensures that students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and intellect to become lifelong learners, leaders, and responsible global citizens.

Marketing

Philosophy

Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) is a new and innovative discipline of marketing that includes advertising, direct marketing, promotion, press & publicity, public relations, event marketing, support strategies, digital and internet based marketing under one umbrella. Clow and Baack (2004) define IMC as: “The coordination and integration of all marketing communication tools, avenues and sources within [an organization] into a seamless program that maximizes the impact on [constituents] and other end users at minimal cost.” From this definition the core elements and foundations of IMC are Coordination | Integration | Seamless Campaign | Maximize Impact | Minimize Costs. In its essence, it establishes consistent brand imagery and marketing messages at various touch points (the points of interaction a constituent has with a service/product provided by the organization).

Print

To maximize the impact of the conference promotion, execution, and follow up, a vibrant color palette was carefully chosen and arranged to create fresh, exciting imagery to aid in the launch of the Dare 2 Lead visual identity (brand). The palette helped organize the participants by Front: Print Size 12 Print in. wide Front: Size 12 in. wide grade-level, matching their D2L Student Handbook with tee shirts worn by designated EIP Mentors.
