Hollins Wins CASE Circle of Excellence Award

CASE Bronze Award

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has presented Hollins University a bronze award in its 2017 Circle of Excellence awards program.

A panel of experts recognized “Women Who Are Going Places Start at Hollins,” the university’s entry in the Short Video category. The video was produced by Capstrat, a strategic communications firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This year, more than 715 higher education institutions, independent schools, and nonprofits worldwide submitted 3,364 entries for consideration in nearly 100 categories. Judges gave 366 awards: 118 bronze, 125 silver, 107 gold, and 16 grand gold.
