Language and storytelling play an integral role in PC’s brand. No matter what story you’re trying to tell, our three key messaging pillars: rigorous inquiry, meaningful connections, or robust participation can guide the narrative. 


Positioning is how we want to be thought of in the minds of our most important audiences. It’s not how we express yourself externally; it’s about what we want people to remember when they walk away.


Providence College inspires unquenchable curiosity …


Through a boldly intellectual and interconnected approach…


So that students can flourish professionally and personally.
