CASE Affiliated Student Advancement Programs

students at ASAP district conferenceCASE ASAP comprises student alumni associations, student foundations and similar organizations at more than 300 CASE member institutions. Its goal is to foster and enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement—from alumni relations and communications to fundraising, marketing and related areas.

CASE ASAP also supports the advancement profession by alerting students and their advisers of advancement opportunities, resources and career paths.


The first student alumni association was established at Indiana University in the late 1940s. Formal organization of a national program occurred in 1973 at the University of Minnesota where 300 students representing 67 institutions voted unanimously to establish the Student Alumni Association/Student Foundation Network.

In 1992, the SAA/SF Network formally became a part of CASE. The SAA/SF Network changed its name to the Association of Student Advancement Programs in 2000. In 2008, with the goal of clarifying the program, strengthening its connection to CASE and better aligning its mission with CASE's strategic initiatives, the ASAP Program changed its name to CASE Affiliated Student Advancement Programs (CASE ASAP).
