Good ideas come from every corner of the globe, and from every size and shape of advancement office.
Each year the CASE Circle of Excellence Awards recognize hundreds of institutions whose talented staff members advanced their institutions last year through innovative, inspiring and creative ideas.
Benefits of Participating
The awards acknowledge superior accomplishments that have lasting impact, demonstrate the highest level of professionalism and deliver exceptional results. Some winners are showcased on the CASE website, in Currents magazine, and at various CASE conferences.
By entering, you’ll see how you stack up against your peers and colleagues, and how you can learn from their accomplishments. Publications from many winning entries are added online as well as judges’ notes, organized by category, to serve as a resource for future Circle of Excellence Awards entrants.
Be Reviewed by Your Peers
Circle of Excellence Awards are judged by your colleagues. Our volunteer judges understand the challenges, opportunities and rewards inherent in the advancement profession; value creativity and innovation; appreciate the complex demands of campus environments; and recognize the role of advancement practitioners in enhancing the quality and reputations of educational institutions.
Contribute to the Profession
Award-winning programs epitomize the profession’s best practices. They not only provide great value to their institutions but also contribute to the betterment of advancement overall. As such, they help nurture our profession’s deeply rooted culture of sharing, collegiality and cooperation. The CASE Library maintains print samples of winning entries from past Circle of Excellence Awards to provide CASE members with an inspiring collection of winning strategies and best practices to adopt in their own work.
