What's The Student Emergency Fund?

The Office of Alumni & Development established a fund in March, 2020 for alumni to contribute funds to support students who faced unexpected situations and hardship. The fund was established in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The fund has helped students with transportation, past due utility bills and food insecurity.

For students facing an unexpected hardship or an emergency, please email the Dean of Students Office.

The Dean of Students Office works with students individually to determine how to best meet these immediate needs.
