Providence College earns four CASE District I awards of excellence
Providence College received four honors in the 2021 District 1 Excellence Awards competition of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, known as CASE.
The honors — one gold and three silver — represent work produced by the Division of Marketing and Communications and the Office of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations.
In addition, the College is a finalist for a CASE Platinum Award for Photography, in recognition of the images that accompanied a Providence College Magazine feature about former College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. ’80 in the Summer 2020 issue.
Gold honors went to PC’s new virtual alumni events program, Friar T.I.E.S., in the category of “Alumni Relations in a Pivot.” In April 2020, the College launched Friar T.I.E.S. as a means for the Friar community to stay connected while in-person events were canceled during the pandemic. Nearly a year later the program continues, having produced more than 100 online events and dozens of engagement activities, and hosting thousands of participants.Friar T.I.E.S.
