The Council for Advancement & Support of Education
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) is an international association of education advancement officers, who include alumni administrators, development officers, public relations managers, publications editors, and government relations officers.
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 at a conference or online, CASE provides important connections, all of which can help strengthen the effectiveness of your advancement program.
