Last week, each campus employee received in campus mail a packet of information about the University Family Drive. I hope that you took a moment to read over it.
I want to tell you why I think the drive is important and why I hope you will participate.
Over the last few years, as a university community, we have planned and collaborated, and IUP has arrived at an exciting point in its history. So many things are converging to create forward progress—the new strategic plan, our work on Middle States reaffirmation, the creation of new programs. Even some of the less-than-positive things provide us with opportunities to reassess, correct, and improve. Participation in the University Family Drive has increased exponentially in that time, which is a sign that people are finding the work here at this time very satisfying. While it’s challenging work, I know I am enjoying it and working with everyone at IUP.
From my perspective, two reasons for participating in the University Family Drive are most compelling.
I hope you’ll join me in giving to our university, which is a most worthy charitable organization. Our goal is to reach 800 participants by April 8.
Thank you for your hard work every single day and for considering placing your charitable support toward this wonderful university.
