Atlanta Metropolitan State College

About AMSC

Strategic Goal Three - Brand
Establish an Effective Brand Consistent with the Institution’s Mission/Function

Rationale

Atlanta Metropolitan State College has the responsibility of informing the general public of changes in its mission, as well as aligning the College’s programs and services with its stated mission. Otherwise, the public’s recognition and perception are dated and inaccurate. The growth and sustainability of the College will rely on the engagement of the public in utilizing, embracing, and supporting its current mission. A well informed public of the College’s mission and purpose, “Branding,” is the first step in educating and inviting the public to wholly embrace Atlanta Metropolitan State College.
