Wanger Associates was originally founded as an agency specializing in education as Barry Wanger, the principal and founder, has served as director of public affairs for the National Endowment for the Humanities, Brandeis University, UC Santa Barbara, and Wheelock College.
We have represented more than 20 large and small colleges and universities, conducting major communications audits, handling national and local media relations, creating websites, and developing and implementing comprehensive public relations plans.
What sets us apart is that we have extensive experience working closely with the offices of the president, development, admissions, and alumni affairs. We have produced two inaugurations, prepared speeches and presentations for presidents and deans, created a case study for a capital campaign, prepared direct mail for admissions, and produced an alumni magazine.
Clients have included: Harvard School of Education, Wellesley College, Simmons College, Northeastern University's School of Law, New England College of Optometry, Hebrew College, Cambridge College, Roxbury Community College, Northern Essex Community College, Wheelock College, Regis College, Fitchburg State College, Mt. Holyoke College, and Colleges of the Fenway among others.
In virtually all situations our efforts focus on two bottom lines: increasing the number of quality applicants and supporting fundraising campaigns.
Among our major projects:
“The publicity that Wanger Associates afforded AT&T was broad, constant and sharply focused. And the no-frills approach translated into reasonable rates.”
“In brief, Wanger helped place AT&T on network television, national print and syndicated radio. Moreover, we received wise counsel when planning approaches to publicity.”
“Having worked in public relations since 1969 and having dealt with agencies large and small, I would say that Wanger Associates rates among the top.”
