Independent Arts Report: In a radio documentary produced by the the upper-level communications class Theory & Practice of Effective Communication at York University, we hear from students and faculty about the university’s new “This Is My Time” branding campaign. From the reasons behind the campaign to its cost-effectiveness along with the problematic nature of the “Vision Exchange”, the documentary critically examines the corporate branding of universities in our neoliberal climate. Listen to what students have to say about university funds being spent on media branding in the face of growing student debt and the inadequate resources available to students on campus.
