Student Support & Experiences

There are many hurdles to navigate in a new collegiate and graduate experience. We provide avenues to ensure student success and persistence regardless of learning styles, finances or background. A student’s relationship with the campus and community has a profound effect on their overall success within and beyond the University. Gifts in support of student experiences provide resources for programs that provide an inclusive and accessible campus that helps all students thrive, from its buildings and residential programming to its traditions.
