Notre Dame receives three CASE awards

Author: Arts and Letters


The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) presented three awards to the University of Notre Dame at the organization’s annual assembly.

Notre Dame Magazine, the University’s quarterly alumni publication, earned two silver medals for “Best Articles of the Year” entries, and the Department of Art, Art History, and Design received a silver medal for its departmental catalog in the “Individual Student Recruitment Publications” category.

“An Englishman at Notre Dame,” published in the autumn 2005 issue of Notre Dame Magazine by Peter Wicks, a graduate student in the Department of Philosophy, discusses how, after “re-learning” how to pronounce his first name, he finds life in the United States “strangely familiar and similarly odd.”

In “Land’s End,” published in the magazine’s winter 2006 issue, Notre Dame English professor Valerie Sayers ponders the societal, moral, historical and political landscape of her hometown, Beaufort, S.C.

Designed by Tom Walker, formerly of the Notre Dame Media Group, the Art, Art History and Design departmental catalog lists and describes courses and helps to promote the program. The layout showcases the work of faculty and current students.

CASE is the largest international association of education institutions, serving more than 3,000 universities, colleges, schools and related organizations in 45 countries. It is the leading resource for professional development, information and standards in the fields of education, fund raising, communications and alumni relations.
