Drury University has been named the recipient of the CASE Educational Fundraising Award for Overall Improvement.
CASE, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, cited Drury for “exemplary development programs.” The award is given over a three-year review period, so the efforts of the University from 2017-2019 were what earned the honor.
“The Drury family has truly come together to support the launch of the Your Drury Fusion academic program, scholarships and financial aid, hands-on learning experiences, and the campus master plan – including the upcoming Enterprise Center, our first new academic building in nearly 20 years,” Drury President Dr. Tim Cloyd said in a statement.
Other factors considered by CASE before giving the award, beyond total funds raised, includes patterns of growth in support, overall fundraising size, and amount of alumni participation.
CASE is a global non-profit that focuses on educational advancement.
