CASE Announces Publication of Global Exchange: Dialogues to Advance Education by President and CEO Sue Cunningham
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is pleased to announce the publication of Global Exchange: Dialogues to Advance Education, written by CASE President and CEO Sue Cunningham. Global Exchange captures provocative thinking on critical issues facing the educational advancement sector. The book considers the future of the integrated advancement profession, its key challenges, and the best thinking to address both challenges and opportunities.
Through in-depth conversations with educational and foundation leaders from around the world, Global Exchange addresses topics including: perceptions of education; the role of data; building diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging; the ethics of philanthropic engagement; the future of alumni relations; and collaborating beyond institutions and international borders.
Known throughout the field for her leadership and expertise in creating connections and conversations that advance educational institutions, Cunningham was inspired to write Global Exchange by a desire to support the profession’s growth and facilitate innovation through international collaboration.
“With the discussions in this book, we are lifting Konstantin Stanislavski’s fourth wall and inviting you into the room. And unlike attending a vibrant and engaging in-person discussion which grows hazy the moment you have left the room, with Global Exchange you can return to the conversations at your leisure, contemplate them, earmark them, and use them to guide or annotate your professional journey. They provide insights, actions, and perspectives to enable educational leaders and advancement professionals at every level of their career to access the wisdom of these voices and continue conversations within their own networks. This is a manual for the future of our work,” says Cunningham.
“In this remarkable book, Sue Cunningham makes a compelling argument that the field of advancement is central to the success of any educational institution seeking to fulfill its mission and bring about positive change in society,” says James T. Harris III, President of University of San Diego and President Emeritus of Widener University. “Whether one is new to the field or a seasoned leader, this book is a treasure trove of information about the art and science associated with effective advancement operations at educational institutions all over the globe.”
Cunningham has served as President and CEO of CASE since 2015. Under her leadership, CASE has undertaken two comprehensive strategic planning processes that resulted in Reimagining CASE: 2017- 2021 and Championing Advancement, 2022-2027, ambitious and comprehensive frameworks for serving CASE's members and championing education worldwide. Prior to joining CASE, Cunningham served as Vice-Principal for Advancement at the University of Melbourne. She was also the Director of Development for the University of Oxford and Director of External Relations at St Andrews University. Her career began working in the arts and cultural sector.
