ComArtSci Student Emergency Fund

Those small things make a huge difference. Despite all the efforts made to ensure student academic success, sometimes situations arise which create a financial roadblock for student achievement.

We desperately need informal vehicles to help students cope and succeed. With the staggering costs students and families face today (and the painful loans too many incur), we need to help every student who is acting in good faith in pursuit of earning a college degree. We can't afford to lose anyone who can be given a lifeline to graduation. Because the worst place to be is a college drop out with outstanding debt and no degree! Whether it be food or books or that final 2-credit course, let's find a way to give them whatever it takes to make a difference in the lives of students in need.

The College of Communication Arts and Sciences is focused on providing students with that “little extra” they need in order to enhance their educational experience while also ensuring their career goals and aspirations are seamless.

Our students need your help more than ever in navigating their paths to graduation and making a firm landing to pursue their careers.

One very simple act can make the biggest difference. This project will help to establish a fund student’s can utilize when they encounter minor financial adversity. This fund will be used to support those small but critical needs our students have such as textbooks, class credits, and unforeseen expenses that may create a barrier to academic success.

Supporting students with the tools and resources, they need to be successful, it is life changing. When students can’t afford a textbook for one of their classes, a class credit, or other unforeseen expenses that puts their graduation in jeopardy, we will use the funds to ensure their career trajectory is not demolished.
