When Charles Sandage founded the Department of Advertising at Illinois in 1959 he wasn’t thinking about making history. He was fulfilling part of his vision of making advertising education a discipline and scholarly endeavor.

We honor his belief that advertising educators and the industry should be more collaborative by hosting the Sandage Symposium 2015.

This event will provide a forum for professors and professionals to engage in interactive discussions regarding the current issues facing the industry as well as advertising education.

Join us as we discuss advertising at the intersection of art and science.
