Congratulations to the UC Advancement team, who were honoured with three awards from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
UC Perspectives on COVID-19, a special digital publication that documents the UC community’s response to the pandemic, was honoured with a silver award in the publications pivot category. The judges said: "We appreciated the breadth and scope of the impact of COVID-19 to the institution, including a look at the social justice-related impacts in addition to health, safety, and academics."
The virtual event “Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too,” which brought UC alumni together online to bake a treat in the comfort of their own homes in the early days of the pandemic, received a silver in the special events pivot category.
Finally, the team received a silver in the donor relations and stewardship category for a publication that follows former scholarship recipients to show the impact of donations on their lives and careers. The judges commented: "If I was a donor, I would be overwhelmed by how many lives my donation had touched, and the number of careers that I had a part in starting."
