The Missouri S&T development team’s fundraising efforts have earned national recognition from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. Missouri S&T received the 2009 CASE Circle of Excellence Award in July as one of the nation’s eight most improved fundraising programs.


The award recognizes overall improvement in educational fundraising programs based on data submitted to the Council for Aid to Education’s “Voluntary Support of Education” survey. This is the second time Missouri S&T has earned this national award during the university’s $200 million, seven-year Advancing Excellence Campaign. The university also received the award in 2005.

“Success in fundraising takes hard-working fundraisers, exceptional alumni relations specialists and creative marketers,” says Connie Eggert, vice chancellor for university advancement at Missouri S&T. “But Missouri S&T excels because of our remarkably integrated advancement operation. We employ innovative researchers, meticulous gift processors, detailed event experts, caring donor relations staff and collaborative annual fund professionals. Add to that loyal alumni and dedicated faculty and staff and our results compound each and every year.”
