2016 CAS University Award Winners Recognized

At the 2016 CAS Business Session on November 16 in Orlando, outgoing CAS President Steve Lowe recognized the winners of the 2016 CAS University Award: Illinois State University; University of California, Santa Barbara; University of Connecticut; and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Lowe presented representatives from each university with a plaque. Winning schools had each received a $5,000 award prior to the start of the academic year to further enhance their programs. The schools were selected in June 2016 to receive the inaugural award for exemplary work in preparing students for a career in the property-casualty insurance industry. During an Annual Meeting session, the school representatives shared their insights and best practices for conducting university actuarial programs. The CAS is now accepting applications for the 2017 CAS University Award Program through March 15, 2017. Please contact CAS University Engagement Manager Tamar Gertner with questions at
