Rensselaer's Alumni Office To Receive National Awards
May 11, 2001
Troy, N.Y. — The Alumni Relations Department at Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute will receive two prestigious Circle of
Excellence Awards from the Council for Advancement and Support
of Education (CASE).
The awards will be presented July 2 at the CASE International Assembly in San Francisco.
Alumni relations awards will be given in 17 categories. Rensselaer and UCLA are the only universities to be honored in more than one category.
One of the national awards recognizes Rensselaer’s new, comprehensive program to recruit and recognize alumni volunteers. The CASE award will be given in the New Program Initiatives category.
The other award recognizes the creation of an alumni affinity group that brings together Rensselaer graduates who practice in the fields of patent law, intellectual property, and licensing. The CASE award will be given in the Campus/ Constituent Groups category.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from CASE for our efforts to create the value-added relationships that alumni seek from their alma mater,” said David Bohan, director of alumni relations at Rensselaer.
CASE membership includes more than 2,900 colleges, universities, and elementary and secondary schools in the United States and 44 other countries, making it the largest nonprofit education association in terms of institutional membership in the world.
