This year has been unlike anything any of us have experienced. As leaders, we have had to make some of the most difficult decisions in our careers—decisions that have enormous consequences on our institutions, students, staff, faculty, and local communities. It is in the midst of these challenges that we also see the light—our schools, colleges, and universities are rising to the occasion to advance education and transform lives and society. We belong to a global community committed to this work. Like you, CASE had to pivot this year and transition all Spring and Summer programs online. With that transition came the creation of the CASE Global Leadership Forum. It brings together senior education and advancement leaders for an elite online event—merging the best of the CASE Summit for Leaders in Advancement with the CASE Europe Annual Conference’s Leadership Forum.
