12 ways to support the U on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement of philanthropy and support. Each year thousands of donors give to organizations that work to make the world a better place. In the hubbub of the holiday season, it’s always nice to take a step back and evaluate how we can help those around us. This year we decided to join in on the excitement with some amazing projects that offer student support and resources on campus.

Student Veterans

Only about 60% of student veterans receive support from the GI Bill and many of them only receive a partial benefit. Help unlock a $20,000 matching donation for student veterans scholarships by supporting the Veterans Resource Center.
