For the fourth consecutive year, the Geoscience Department faculty and staff reached its goal of 100 percent participation in the 2017 University Family Drive.

Geoscience faculty and staff gave generously to support students in several areas, including the Joseph C. Clark Research Scholars, Walt Granata Geology Fund, Paul Prince Oceanography Fund, and the Next Generation Field Fund.

"We have always focused on a student-first philosophy in our program, and it shows in the way we give to our students both academically and financially", said Steve Hovan, department chairperson.

Overall at the university, 823 employees made IUP students a philanthropic priority, placing IUP’s employee participation at 57 percent of those actively solicited—the highest percentage ever.
