Perspectives Publication

Spring 2019 Issue

In this issue, we invite you to discover some of the steps Student Life is taking to meet the needs of Generation Z and others yet to come. Learning communities such as The Data Mine take learning beyond the classroom and equip students with the technological literacy they will need to succeed in the workplace. New residence halls and renovated space in the Union Club Hotel will also provide living, learning opportunities for students. Programs such as Portfolium and WellTrack capitalize on the technological resourcefulness of students and provide them with tools to address their own needs and prepare for careers. These are just some of the examples you will find in these pages.

Your support through gifts is one of the ways we rise to meet the challenge of ensuring the success of each student. Gifts help us create and support innovative programming that helps students find their “home” on campus, whether it’s through student housing, activities, arts or any of the numerous other opportunities available to them. In this issue of Perspectives, we share with you the ways in which gifts have been used to transform the lives of students. Even the smallest gifts make a big difference.
