Last week, we kicked off the Big Orange Family Campaign, a campus-wide initiative to enhance philanthropy among UT faculty and staff. For the next month, you will receive emails about the importance of giving back and inspiring others to give to UT.
In our college, we saw this as an opportunity to launch a specific campaign dedicated to support the people we are here for – our students.
Over the years, faculty and staff have shared stories about students who need some additional financial help in order to register for classes or purchase materials, such as clickers, required for a course, but could not find a source of funding. We hope to end those stories with this campaign.
We launched a Student Emergency Fund to help any student majoring in the College of Arts and Sciences who finds themselves in an unforeseen financial emergency. With your support, we can fill a void in these students’ lives and help them succeed.
Please consider supporting this important initiative and sharing the giving opportunity with your friends and family. Together, we can help our students succeed.
