A year-long initiative at Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, which offered enrichment and community service to the greater Philadelphia area, has received international recognition for its efforts.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), headquartered in Washington, D.C., named Harcum a bronze winner of a 2016 Circle of Excellence Award.
Harcum celebrated its Centennial in 2015 which included "100 Acts of Service," a juried art show "100 Years of Art, "a crowd-sourced fundraiser Bears & Squares, a free lecture series, and a fragrance collection.
"Harcum had very clear objectives and clear evidence of reaching the goals," CASE judges said. "Some events were things we had never seen before (like the signature scents). The events really aligned with the college's personality."
In 2016, more than 710 higher education institutions, independent schools, and nonprofits worldwide submitted more than 3,350 entries to CASE in nearly 100 categories.
