CAS has a number of programs and resources for universities. Read on to learn more!
CAS University Liaison Program
An active, dedicated network of over 300 University Liaisons – practicing property and casualty actuarial professionals – visit campuses regularly. In addition to connecting with professors, University Liaisons spend time with students, providing guidance on course selection for an actuarial career, giving a heads-up on resources, answering questions about the career, the actuarial exam process, syllabus readings, and more. And more often than not, they also are keeping their eye out for strong talent that their employers might want to know about.
CAS Student Central
CAS offers a free membership program that provides university students with exclusive benefits, from career resources to study tools to networking events! Join the more than 7,000 students already benefiting from this program.

CAS Student Ambassador Program
This program cultivates student leaders who partner closely with their CAS University Liaisons to champion the CAS and the property-casualty actuarial profession at their university. CAS Student Ambassadors plan events, share news and resources with their classmates, and provide feedback to the CAS. Universities can nominate one student each year to serve a two year term. For more information about the program please contact CAS University Engagement Manager Tamar Gertner.
