Coggins was one of three Outstanding Adviser award recipients recognized in August at the national conference of CASE ASAP, the organization that fosters student involvement in all areas of institutional advancement. ASAP (Affiliated Student Advancement Programs) falls under the umbrella of CASE (the Council for Advancement and Support of Education), which is the advancement industry’s signature membership organization.
Coggins was honored for her leadership in providing guidance to the UCAA-affiliated Student Alumni Council (SAC), which has led to increased membership and expanded programming toward SAC’s goal of enhanced student engagement on campus. She began advising SAC in 2012. She was earlier recognized by CASE ASAP District V, the six-state region that encompasses institutions in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. More than 300 CASE-member colleges and universities in eight districts are eligible to nominate staff members, students, organizations and programs for regional and national awards.
“It’s a joy to work with some of UC’s top student leaders in the Student Alumni Council and watch them grow into incredible professionals and, eventually, our alumni leaders,” Coggins said.
Her award wasn’t the only acclaim garnered by UC in the CASE ASAP awards process for District V. Jack Johnson, SAC president during the 2015-16 academic year, was named Outstanding Student Leader; the Student Alumni Council was named Outstanding Organization; and SAC’s Dinner With 12 Strangers received the Outstanding Student Advancement Program award.
