The College's 2006 Summer Research at Bowdoin booklet has been honored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) with a 2007 Communication Award.

The booklet earned the silver award in the Annual Reports and Booklets category. (No gold award was given.)

The CASE District I Communication Awards recognize outstanding achievement in higher education, independent school, and non-profit organization communications.

Judges assess overall design, content and writing, and use of photography, graphics, and technology.

The award-winning booklet, produced by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs, illustrates that the College is a center for meaningful research by both faculty and students at a time when some might assume the campus has "shut down."

Far from it. During the summer months, when the beauty of the Maine coast beckons, Bowdoin's faculty members — who are among the nation's top scholars, researchers, and performers — return to the College's labs, archives and studios to steep themselves in their disciplines.

Summer Research at Bowdoin illustrates the breadth of their work — much of it involving undergraduate student research assistants. From the marine laboratory to the music hall, Bowdoin faculty and student researchers plunge into intensive exploration and collaborations.

Every year several hundred students participate in summer research, which is supported by dozens of prestigious grants and fellowships.

The booklet also serves to highlight academic opportunities for prospective students, keep alumni in touch with faculty and their work, celebrate community and peer partnerships, and support goals of the Bowdoin Campaign.

The articles featured in the booklet are available at the Summer Research at Bowdoin Web site. A PDF of the booklet can be downloaded here.

CASE is the professional organization for advancement professionals at all levels who work in alumni relations, communications, and development.
