Two University Communications publications, USI Today and illume were announced as 2018 award winners last week by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for District V which includes universities in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. CASE District V annually recognizes excellence in the district. The Pride of CASE V Awards showcase best practices in alumni relations, fundraising, advancement services, special events and outstanding communications. Experts from all disciplines outside of District V judge the entries.
USI Today, the University of Southern Indiana’s electronic newsletter for faculty, staff and retirees, won the Silver Award for Best Electronic Newsletter. This award recognizes an outstanding electronic newsletter used by the institution or a unit within it. Judging criteria was based on an understanding of the target audience(s); institution’s mission and how well it is communicated; budget; creative use of available resources; publication’s content, writing, editing, layout and design; and results. Last year, USI Today received the Bronze Award in this same category.
illume received its second consecutive honorable mention for Best Alumni/Institution Magazine for universities with more than 10,000 students. This category recognizes outstanding work on magazines published by an institution and/or alumni association, geared toward external audiences. Judging criteria was based on the objectives of the magazine publishing program; magazine content, writing, editing, layout and design and print quality; creative story ideas; and serving the audience.
Congratulations to University Communications and all involved in the creation and distribution of these publications!
