New University Name For An Existing Graduate School
PROJECT: New university name.
PALO ALTO UNIVERSITY: Named for the school’s home region and links to nearby Stanford University.
BRAND POSITIONING: The Pacific Graduate School of Psychology (PGSP), located in Palo Alto, California, is one of the premier graduate schools in the United States for the advanced study of psychology. The university intended to keep the PGSP name in place for the graduate school of psychology, but wanted a broader name, preferably with a regional basis, for the umbrella university name. The new name, Palo Alto University (PAU), links the school to the local community, the region in general, and by association to Stanford University’s School of Medicine and Department of Psychiatry, with which PGSP has cooperative relationships.
