Awarding 125 degrees of engagement.

One hundred and twenty-five years of innovating higher education calls for a celebration.

In celebrating its 125th anniversary, Strayer Education sought to showcase the unique history of its growth and journey to becoming the most significant for-profit venture in American history. As Strayer has evolved, it has adapted to simultaneously meet students’ needs and changing business demands. We were tasked with bringing Strayer’s evolution to life.

An award-winning interactive timeline.

In response, we took the term ‘interactive timeline’ to the next level. We designed and developed a captivating digital experience,, that highlights major advances in education and capitalizes on key moments in Strayer’s history. To maximize the impact, value and lifetime of the project, we also built a custom administrative interface so that Strayer staff can maintain and add new content and deliver it to many web properties simultaneously via an API. This same content is now presented on the celebration minisite, as well as the main university website.
