Recent Awards

2021 Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Circle of Excellence Awards

  • Alumni Relations: Targeted Constituency Engagement (Grand Gold): Camp Diamondback

    Judges' feedback: Fun, creative program and great way to engage alumni, faculty, and families. Can be used as an example for other schools. Great program!

  • Design: Publications (Multi-Page) (Silver): Terps Together: The University of Maryland Alumni Association Cookbook

    Judges' comments: Creative idea for COVID engagement with alumni with this fun cooking-focused “give-to-get” during a digital age in which people order online regularly. The layout is clean, warm, and homey in tone; well-branded. One illustrator gives coherence. A collector’s item that is sure to be a beloved archival piece for the institution for years to come.

  • Special Events: In-Person - Multi-Day (Silver): Terp Trips

    Judges' comments: Consensus: We LOVED this entry. It was incredibly creative while adapting to the variables surrounding COVID. The deliverable items were thought through and detailed and helped bring the event to life. The amount of research and effort used to execute this project, while having a smaller budget, stood out. We did think it was a unique event style and format to engage alumni, build a community connection, and connect to one another. Great work!

  • Special Events: In-Person - Single-Day (Bronze): EnTERPreneur Conference

    Judges' comments: While this was not a unique event, we felt it was a good example of a conference done well. The inclusion of Terp businesses and alumni throughout was what gave this event an edge.
