2006 Virtual Case Study Competition (VCS)

This year marked our 5th Annual Virtual Case Study Competition for Masters level students in student personnel administration, counseling or higher education administration graduate programs.

A record 51 teams submitted final presentations for this year's competition.

A write-up of our winners along with links to each team project has been published in the Spring 2006 edition of Student Affairs Online.
