Texas A&M University's College of Engineering wins Circle of Excellence-Gold Level Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for donor outreach campaign created by UviaUs.


About the Awards:

CASE is an international organization supporting the advancement of education. Each year, they recognize a select few in the industry that advances their institutions in unique and inspiring ways. The Gold Circle of Excellence Awards is one of the highest honors in education. 


The 2019 awards saw nearly 3000 nominations from over 600 educational institutions and non-profits in 20 countries. 


About the Project:


Over the past three years, Texas A&M raised over $75 million to transform its Zachry Engineering Building into a state-of-the-art teaching facility. To celebrate the dedication, they wanted to thank the generous donors who made this expansion possible.

Rather than just another plaque or certificate, Texas A&M partnered with UviaUs to create a unique, interactive gift. The gift featured an embedded video player, loaded with a personalized message of thanks from the engineering students who benefitted directly from their donation—packaged in a fully branded keepsake box specifically designed with Texas A&M alumni in mind.

After the success of this project, UviaUs is now working with several other departments at Texas A&M on new outreach and donor relations projects.
