Dear Colleagues,

I’d like to thank you for making our recent 30 Days of Giving Campaign for Staff and Faculty a success. In particular, thank you to the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology for championing this campaign and generating the highest participation rate of any Arts & Science unit!

As well, congratulations to the winners of the prize draw:

  • Yunchen Gong from the Department of Cell & Systems Biology
  • Kelly Hayward from the Department of English
  • Smaro Kamboureli from the Department of English
  • John Kloppenborg from the Department for the Study of Religion

Thank you all for your philanthropic support. This fiscal year, we’ve raised more than $221,000, which will go toward supporting our outstanding students, teaching initiatives and research projects at Arts & Science. We are living in tough economic times, and I truly appreciate so many of you coming forward to financially support deserving students and important initiatives at A&S.

Please remember that even though the 30 Days campaign is over, you can still play a philanthropic role and show your support with a charitable gift any time to an Arts & Science initiative that is meaningful to you. Together, we can have a transformative impact.
