Alumni Association announces 2019 CASE Awards

Posted February 2, 2019

Whether it’s an e-mail, Alumni Club event, awards ceremony or issue of the K-Stater magazine, all the K-State Alumni Association’s programs and publications are a true team effort. We have a passion for connection and communication, helping you get involved and making sure you feel connected to your alma mater, wherever you may live.

We’re excited to announce that some of these programs and publications were recently honored as part of the CASE District VI 2019 awards! CASE stands for Council for Advancement and Support of Education; the organization provides resources and networking opportunities for educational institutions involved in alumni relations, communications, development, marketing and more.

You can find a list of the K-State Alumni Association’s 2019 CASE Awards below, and you can click on the links for more information about the programs. We’d also like to congratulate our friends over at the KSU Foundation and the K-State Division of Communications and Marketing, who also received a number of CASE Awards this year (VIEW A FULL LIST). Go ’Cats!
