Donor support transforms my college and our campus into a community. A college and university can offer classes, but donor support helps us change lives. It helps us support students who are sometimes in need financially and other times in need of life expanding and life-changing opportunities. Donor support also helps our faculty. It helps our faculty to recognize and support excellence in scholarship. It helps our faculty and our students to engage in transforming what’s learned in the classroom into what’s done in communities. And finally it supports us in the pursuit of scholarship and excellence wherever that takes us. Donor support helps make it so that there are no limits. What I’m hoping this campaign will do is invite everyone who believes that we can do better and we can be there and we can make the world a better place to join with us.
