August 7, 2019 –NAPLES/FORT MYERS, FLA – Hodges University launched a new brand and logo, and unveiled a redesigned website, Pathways.Hodges.edu.
“As we have evolved over the years in our focus of workforce-directed education, we wanted to create a new look for the university,” said Dr. John Meyer, president, Hodges University. “The new colors, logo and website also build momentum for our 30th anniversary next year.”
The new colors were selected because of their meanings and how those meanings relate to the mission and vision of the university. Coral red signifies compassion, emotional intelligence and community connection. The second color is Navy blue, which indicates trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence and truth. Our new mascot is the Hawk and was inspired by a pair of hawks that have made the Fort Myers campus their home for years. The Hawk represents the time in one’s life when the focus is on what’s ahead and the preparation for a leadership role. The Hawk is powerful, has a global vision, and is laser focused on the future.
The new university seal includes the Latin phrase “Knowledge Leads to Growth.”
“Together, these new colors and mascot reinforce that Hodges is the place to gain wisdom and confidence; encourage intelligence, compassion, a strong community connection; and fly higher than ever before,” said Dr. Meyer. “Hodges is coral red, Navy blue and the hawk.”
