These days, apparently a university cannot have an internet presence without a view mark and a tagline.  At Northern Illinois University, forty-five people labored to come up with "Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow" (to my great amusement).  Now, for reasons unknown to me, the university home page still has the same Stratego piece as a view mark, but the tag-line is "Your Future, Our Focus."  If there was a focus group or a branding committee, headquarters had the good grace to leave me out of the loop and just go away.  Or perhaps it's been changed by administrative ukase.  Whatever.  Still no news of five faculty searches authorized for the economics department.
