Gandhi said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." The goal of the VCU Brandcenter is to be the premier graduate school for future advertising and marketing leaders. To achieve this, it is imperative we remain unaligned with any one agency or company and look to the whole industry, as well as alumni and friends, for support. With that support, we can continue to attract accomplished full-time faculty who will produce a constant source of talent for the entire industry.

And we can continue to attract and educate students in every track to be skilled idea generators who are prepared to work in an increasingly integrated business.
