2016 CAS University Award Program – Meet the Winners
The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) selected four universities as recipients of the 2016 CAS University Award, an honor created to recognize schools doing exemplary work in preparing students for a career in the property and casualty insurance industry.
As announced on June 1st, the schools honored in the program’s inaugural year include Illinois State University, University of California, Santa Barbara, University of Connecticut, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The selection process for the first annual CAS University Award Program was extremely competitive, with 24 schools throughout North America, Asia, and Australia responding to a call for nominations for the award. Schools completed an application process to share the ways they are excelling in exposing their students to the property and casualty insurance industry in the areas of curriculum, research, industry engagement, and innovation.
Winners of the 2016 CAS University Award Program were determined by a panel of judges from companies across the property and casualty insurance industry.
The four winning schools will each receive a $5,000 monetary award to further enhance their programs. They will also be recognized at the 2016 CAS Annual Meeting, taking place November 13-16, 2016 in Orlando, FL.
