In the 26 years since its debut issue, The Hill has been recognized numerous times by CASE, the premier organization for educational institutions and advancement professionals who work on their behalf. In 2010, the magazine won a gold award for cover design, as well as an honorable mention for staff writing, in the CASE District II Accolades Awards. Following a comprehensive redesign, The Hill was recognized in the 2008 CASE international Circle of Excellence program with a bronze award for general excellence.
