University of Miami School of Communications launched “All of Us” to connect students, alumni and faculty in this time of COVID-19. Powered by Gather Voices, Miami was able to collect videos from all over the world. Students and alumni were able to virtually break their isolation with video. The site has led to a strong sense of community and signals to prospective students that U Miami is a community that cares.
Students, alumni and faculty could all create videos from anywhere in the world without any special instructions or hand holding
Students are feeling isolated because of COVID-19. By sharing their stories, and connecting their stories to the stories of others, they feel connected
Showing a tight-knit community of students and alumni, the University of Miami becomes a more attractive choice for prospective students
For Universities forces to send students home, engagement is a critical concern. To maintain a viable university community, students, alumni and faculty have to feel connected to the school, and to each other.
University of Miami used Gather Voices to connect students to each other, and to alumni all over the world. Integrating a Gather Voices request right into their website, they had an easy way to both collect and display video content.
