Infographics are becoming a popular trend on the internet, often combining complex data with beautiful design. A few universities and colleges have created their own images to promote their school and programs. Here are some ideas for how your institution can use infographics to reach students.
Examples of University Infographics
Capella University has created an infographic that gives an overview of its institution.
The University of Kansas has a diagram explaining financial aid for students.
Oklahoma University shows students how to apply for their Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering graduate program.
The College of William and Mary highlights its alumni.
Rather than creating an infographic that highlights stats about their school and programs, Southern New Hampshire University made their design appeal to the widest audience possible by focusing on a general topic. In fact, their is no mention of their school except in the bottom corner to indicate credit. This is an interesting strategy since this kind of image will be spread around the internet much more than any of the university-specific infographics.
