ASU Achieves Gold Level in 2023 CAS University Recognition Program
Arizona State University has received the highest honor through the CAS University Recognition Program, achieving the Gold Tier. The program recognizes academic institutions with a demonstrated commitment to preparing property and casualty actuaries through their educational offerings. The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) is the world’s only actuarial organization focused exclusively on property and casualty (P&C) risks, serving over 10,000 members worldwide. CAS members work for insurance companies, educational institutions, state insurance departments, federal government agencies, independent consulting firms, and many other organizations that require management of risk.
Universities in the Gold Tier have achieved highest level of recognition offered by meeting part or all of the following criteria:
- offering dedicated property and casualty insurance courses
- placing P&C actuaries on their faculty and/or department advisory boards
- graduating actuarial students with jobs in the P&C field and who have obtained credit for CAS credentialing requirements
The CAS University Recognition Program builds upon the former CAS University Award Program introduced in 2016. As a past CAS University Award winner in 2021 and 2018, Arizona State University was granted early access and priority consideration for the program. ASU will receive a monetary award and a visit from a CAS leader among a variety of other benefits. The full list of recognized academic institutions is posted on the CAS website.
