CCT Gets the Gold!

Cover of Columbia College Today Magazine, Spring 2018 edition
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has awarded CCT a Gold Circle of Excellence Award in the “Writing, Feature Writing, Column or Opinion Piece” category for Paul Starr ’70’s feature, “How the ’68 Uprising Looks Today,” half of our two-part Spring 2018 cover story, “50 Years Later.”


The judges said: “Starr offers an excellent journalistic analysis of the 1968 uprising at Columbia, drawing parallels with protests on campuses and across U.S. cities today. Fifty years on, he tells the story in a way that makes it seem timely and topical … the piece also draws readers in to contend with their own perspectives and actions relative to activism and free speech.”

The Circle of Excellence Awards honor outstanding work in advancement services, alumni relations, communications, fundraising and marketing at colleges, universities, independent schools and affiliated nonprofits. This year, upward of 2,800 entries were submitted across 100 categories.
