The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is an international association of education advancement officers, who include those who work in alumni, development and communications and marketing for independent schools, community colleges and universities.
The ultimate goal of advancement professionals is to enhance their institutions by encouraging support—be it in the form of financial assistance, alumni loyalty, public esteem or new students. In turn, CASE's purpose is to help its members advance the cause of education. It does this by offering information resources and training opportunities.
CASE is a one-stop source for practical, in-depth information and training in all areas of institutional advancement, including alumni relations, communications, government relations, development and advancement services. CASE provides programs, publications and services for various types of institutions, professional areas within advancement and different levels of management responsibility (newcomer, mid-level and senior professional).
One of the most valuable benefits of belonging to CASE is also the most intangible—the networking, mentoring and leadership opportunities that CASE makes available to its members. Whether via a conference or online, CASE provides important connections, all of which can help strengthen the effectiveness of your advancement program.
