the University's fundraising efforts garnered national attention when the school was awarded a 2006 CASE- WealthEngine Award for Sustained Excellence in Educational Fundraising.
The award honors fundraising programs nationally, said Pam Russell, director of public relations for the Counsel for Advancement and Support of Education, an association that helps professionals in fields such as alumni relations, communications, marketing and fundraising.
'This particular award … honors those institutions who have won a CASE-WealthEngine Award for Educational Fundraising in three of the past five years,' Russell said."
