// “IN REAL LIFE”


Dartmouth College’s Geisel School Of Medicine is the nations 5th oldest medical school. However, due to its rural location, for most of its history, aspiring physicians were required to finish their medical schooling in larger metro areas like Boston and New York. Although the school transitioned to a full, 4-year program in the 1970’s, many problems related to this history lingered – brand awareness/perception, alumni engagement, diversity, fundraising, and national rankings being most notable.

“32 Hours” was hallmarked by its aggressive content marketing strategy geared towards addressing the problems noted above.  New digital and traditional communication tools were developed, with a massive library of new video content at its foundation.  To optimize the reach of these tools, content syndication and targeted social media advertising were utilized.

The innovative 32 Hours campaign won four (4) Gold-level 2015 CASE Excellence Awards, including one for Best Practices In Marketing Communications.   The “32 Hours Storytelling Initiative” was also nominated for a CASE Platinum award for best Marketing Communications across all categories.
