Athletes who Achieve

As part of its commitment to undergraduate education and student life, Case Western Reserve University offers high-quality athletic programs to every student. Through competition, students learn essential skills that will serve them throughout their entire lives: sportsmanship, team building, goal setting, time management, leadership development, and how to have fun.

Gifts to the Athletic Annual Fund support enhancements to programs, facilities, and special opportunities that arise throughout the year.


Case Western Reserve offers 19 varsity sports, in which over 500 students participate annually. Hundreds more are involved in club sports, intramurals, and physical education courses. Together, these programs provide challenging, healthy opportunities to compete, stay in shape, and manage stress.


All students, faculty and staff have access to athletic facilities for health/wellness and recreation purposes. In addition, athletic facilities are utilized for major events of the university and our partners in the community. Annual gifts support facilities improvements and equipment replacement necessitated by wear and tear.
