The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has granted a Silver Award to the Album Amicorum, the graduation gift from the University of Groningen to Master students and PhDs. CASE – with headquarters in the USA – is viewed worldwide as the no.1 organization for professionals working in the field of alumni relations and fundraising in higher education.
CASE awarded the Silver Award to the Album Amicorum in the category Excellence in Design: Books.
The Album (160 pages, bound and published luxuriously) is a lasting keepsake, in writing but especially images, to the student days, the city of Groningen and the University. Moreover, the book contains all kinds of elements that can personalize it, such as room for writing messages (e.g. by friends) and for sticking in pictures.
The graduation gift was financially sponsored through an initiative of RUG-alumnus Jan Zegering Hadders, board member of the Ubbo Emmius Foundation and former president of the board at ING Netherlands.
