UW-Eau Claire Alumna
Recognized for Design Excellence
MAILED: Nov. 15, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — A series of seven brochures designed by a University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire alumna received second place in the Best Brochure category at the 2002 Awards of Excellence contest. The event, sponsored by the Midwest Cooperative Education and Internship Association, was held Oct. 6-8 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Robyn McAlpine, Rogers, Minn., who graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design in 2001, designed the brochures during her internship with the UW-Eau Claire College of Business. The brochures — specific to each major within the college — described opportunities, requirements and benefits of participating in an internship through that department.
Sharon Becker, career and employment coordinator of Career Services, entered the brochures into the MCEIA contest.
“The brochures emanate professionalism and reflect on the quality of programs, students, faculty and employers that build partnerships with the College of Business and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire,” Becker said.
Comprised of about 200 professionals from industry and educational institutions, MCEIA is a regional professional organization that seeks to advance the cause of experiential education in the workplace and on campus. Included in the region are Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. The annual contest is held to recognize members’ outstanding efforts in promoting cooperative education and internships. Members can submit entries into best brochure, best newsletter or best Internet Web site categories.
McAlpine is currently the graphics coordinator at the Minnesota AIDS Project, a statewide, nonprofit agency committed to enhancing the lives of people living with HIV, providing prevention education for those at risk for HIV and advocating for the rights of all affected by HIV.
McAlpine interned with the UW-Eau Claire College of Business from June of 2000 until she graduated in December 2001.
