COVID Resources and Best Practices
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education recognizes the importance of clear and accurate communications regarding the public health situation in the regions where our members operate.
CASE is committed to the health and well-being of our members, who form a supportive and enthusiastic global community of professionals. In normal circumstances, our members are eager to meet with their peers to exchange ideas, learn from each other, and advance education to transform lives and society. But these are not normal circumstances.
The CASE Statement on COVID-19 continues to evolve with every decision made.
All updates about CASE conferences can be found on the individual conference pages on the CASE website.
For inquiries about CASE Conferences, members can contact the CASE Member Support Center at 202-328-CASE  or support.case.org.
