Higher Education

The measure of success in higher education is more than student achievement. Learned through decades of service on boards of directors at the University of Central Florida and in the development and execution of award-winning communications programs, our team understands the importance of alumni engagement, institutional advancement, philanthropy, research and innovation, and community and economic impact. We have helped university presidents navigate crises, guided successful capital campaigns, provided message and media training to dozens of spokespersons, led an award-winning state college rebrand and more.


In Good Company

Curley & Pynn is proud to work with Beacon College, the first accredited institution of higher learning designed with curriculum and support services to serve students with learning differences. We have also had the privilege of working with the University of Central Florida and Eastern Florida State College, among others.
