The college’s communications—including an alumni Reunion invitation and a fundraising solicitation as well as the college’s biweekly e-newsletter for its faculty and staff, Campus Update — earned recognition in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education 2010 Accolades Awards District II competition.
Alumni and development staff received two silver awards in the category for targeted mail. The end-of-year Adobe© Flash® video e-mail “Time is running out . . .” won in the subcategory for e-solicitations. Loyola University received gold in this category, and Johns Hopkins University earned bronze. The video e-mail invitation for Reunion 2010 won silver in the invitations subcategory, where Lebanon Valley College took gold.
Campus Update, new in its online version in 2009-10 with 18 biweekly issues, earned an honorable mention. The recognition was the highest awarded in CASE’s electronic newsletters category. The Public Affairs Office produces Campus Update, and faculty and staff across campus contribute some of the news items and photos for each issue.
The recognitions come in a district with 700 institutions among seven states, two U.S. territories and Canada — the largest in CASE.
