In mutual allegiance to higher education, our team melds the powers of tenacious detectives and bold cartographers into an association of artistic, intellectual doers. Unicorns and accountants united strategically in a mission to help clients excel. The kind of people who are madly passionate about not only making an intelligently effective plan, but in deploying it—then following it into the world to nurture and foster continued growth—much like a successful student. That’s what we call a good time.
education leads change
Change is accelerating at a shocking magnitude. In a process engineered to identify immutable institutional truths, CCA can work with you to craft a specific strategic plan that rises to meet the new challenges of this emerging global arena—within sight of your current needs. If you ask us, there’s never been a more exciting time to be alive or involved in education.
CCA is the nation’s leading branding and communications agency devoted exclusively to higher education. We partner with some of the top colleges and universities nationwide to create compelling brands, solution-driven plans, and award-winning communications.
Our agency was founded more than 30 years ago with the specific purpose of supporting the marketing, admissions, and institutional advancement departments of colleges and universities. While many of our team members have experience in the corporate world, we all share a passion for higher education and a deep understanding of your goals.
As higher ed has evolved, CCA has evolved with it. We begin each partnership by listening to you, and we’re not afraid to ask hard questions. We base our recommendations on years of experience in helping colleges and universities to solve problems and achieve success.
Our expert team of higher ed specialists will partner with you to communicate effectively with your audiences—whether that means crafting a persuasive brand story, shaping a student recruitment strategy, conducting solid research to guide your work, or raising funds to support your mission.
We are awesome. And we don't say that to brag. Other people think that we're awesome, too. We've lost count of how many awards we've won over our 30+ year history, but we do know that it's a lot.
