 Additional note on FYP campaigns: ​
 IIn meetings conducted in recent academic years, FYP supervisors and faculty administrators endorsed the

 1. A typical FYP campaign is a public communication campaign. A definition follows: "Public communication 
     campaigns can be defined as purposive attempts to inform or influence behaviors in large audiences within a
     specified time period using an organised set of communication activities and featuring an array of mediated 
     messages in multiple channels generally to produce non-commercial benefits to individuals and society" (Rice
     & Atkin, 2013, emphasis added). ​FYP campaigns need not be for social cause, but have traditionally had a
     non-profit orientation. Campaigns have not been commercial, but sometimes have commercial organisations
     as clients. ​
     For example, promoting the launch of a brand of shoes has been outside of the scope of the WKWSCI FYP  
     campaign, but a campaign to help kids find shoes that fit, with particular brand as a client, is within the
     Exceptions require discussion with the FYP supervisor and administrators of the undergraduate programme.

 2. Theoretical perspectives guide campaign strategies.

 3. When use of campaign channels is evaluated, there is no preference either for mainstream media coverage
     or social media reach, but for choices that are appropriate to meet the campaign objectives.

 4.There can be trade-offs between the scope of the project and the depth. If scope is small (e.g., a project 
    targets one school), depth may make the project stronger (e.g., sustained engagement to assure that targets 
    one school), depth may make the project stronger (e.g., sustained engagement to assure that objectives are
    met, or experimentation with multiple strategies).
