Clark University has received awards in the annual Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District I Excellence contest.
The University’s admissions recruiting package (which included two viewbooks, academic brochures, a water bottle, poster and a T-shirt) earned top honors with a silver award (no gold was awarded in that category). Clark’s website focusing on alumni outcomes and the “return” on a Clark education was given honorable mention in the digital category.
CLARK alumni magazine earned a bronze award in the best overall magazine category, circulation of 25,000 and above.
The University's Office of Alumni Affairs received a silver award for its Alumni-in-Residence program in the category of Alumni Programs - Individual Special Events.
“It’s always rewarding to be recognized by your peers, and the roster of fellow awardees puts us in very good company,” said Paula David, vice president of marketing and communications at Clark. “We’re particularly gratified by the silver award for our admissions recruiting package, which reflects the University’s commitment to attract exceptional students through LEEP (Liberal Education and Effective Practice), our pioneering model of higher education.”
Clark was the only Worcester-area college or university to receive awards in this year’s competition. Other colleges to receive recognition include Brown University, Boston University, Tufts University, Northeastern University, MIT, Colby College, Boston College, and Hampshire College.
