Janet Berry, Executive Director of Student Support, and Shaun Keister, Vice Chancellor for Development and Alumni Relations, accepted the award for the Guardian Professions Program at the CASE VII 2018 District Conference in March 2018.

After earning six golds a year ago, UC Davis came away with nearly three times as many in the 2018 CASE regional competition for development, marketing and communication projects.

UC Davis earned 16 gold, 13 silver and nine bronze Awards of Excellence from District VII of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, or CASE — for a total of 38, nine more than a year ago, and giving UC Davis the distinction of receiving the most awards two years in a row in the district that takes in universities in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Hawaii, as well as Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

UC Davis received four of its awards in platinum categories, in which winners automatically advance to the next round of competition, CASE’s international round.

Graduate Studies won a platinum-level award in the Diversity category for the Guardian Professions Program. Believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, this program helps former foster youths reach new heights academically and professionally. The program provides students with the support and mentorship to achieve their dreams of obtaining graduate and professional degrees from UC Davis.
