The University’s research magazine, Endeavors, was recognized in July with two gold medals in the national competition sponsored annually by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Endeavors won the top awards in two categories – for research magazines and for periodical staff writing for external audiences.
Earlier, the UNC General Alumni Association also received two awards in the 2006 district-level awards program sponsored by CASE. The GAA won a special merit award in overall alumni relations programs, and the Carolina Alumni Review won a special merit award for overall alumni magazines.
Life members of the GAA receive each issue of Endeavors as a membership benefit, mailed with the January/February, May/June and September/October issues of the Review. Annual GAA members and others can read Endeavors online.
Also at the district level, UNC’s College of Arts and Sciences‘ magazine, Carolina Arts & Sciences, won an award of excellence in the alumni magazine category. The magazine, which debuted in fall 2005, is a semi-annual publication for alumni and donors of the College of Arts and Sciences.
CASE is the largest international association of educational institutions. It supports the work of alumni relations, communications and fundraising professionals at more than 3,200 schools, colleges, universities and related organizations in 55 countries.
