Dec. 16, 2010 - The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has awarded its Silver Medal to RWU Law's newly redesigned website for its 2011 District I Communication Awards.
Roger Williams University School of Law officially launched its newly redesigned website (law.rwu.edu) in May, after more than a year of work and preparation. The site features a fast-growing array of interactive maps, videos, photo galleries, profiles, stories and other valuable data resources.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education is a professional association serving educational institutions and the advancement professionals who work on their behalf in alumni relations, communications, development, marketing and allied areas. CASE helps its members build stronger relationships with their alumni and donors, raise funds for campus projects, produce recruitment materials, market their institutions to prospective students, diversify the profession, and foster public support of education.
District I covers the northeastern U.S. and Canada: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Hampshire, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Rhode Island and Vermont.
