UC Davis Program for Former Foster Youth Earns International Honors from CASE

Five marketing, communication and development projects from UC Davis have earned international honors from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, or CASE.

The five Circle of Excellence awards — the most earned by any University of California institution — follow 38 awards UC Davis earned in regional CASE competition earlier this year.

The projects awarded Circle of Excellence awards were produced by staff from the offices of Strategic Communications, Graduate Studies, and Development and Alumni Relations.

Honoring the educational aspirations of foster children and youths

May is Foster Care Month, a nationally designated time to recognize the ways in which we all can enhance the lives of a child or youth in foster care.

If you are thinking of offering time as a mentor through CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) or even want to become a foster parent, it is important to know the resources that will be available to that child as he or she matures.
