Dr. Ramesh Soni and Dr. Cyndy Strittmatter, co-chairs of the 2018 SECA campaign at IUP.The theme of this year’s campaign, “Mission Possible:  Accept the Pledge Challenge,” was a call to action for Pennsylvania state employees to show generosity toward charities that are doing important work for our communities.

As of last count, IUP raised $26,971, which was more than any other university in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. 

Cyndy Strittmatter, associate dean of the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology, and Ramesh Soni, chairperson of the Management Department, co-chaired the campaign this year.

“It was a pleasure to work with the system office on this important initiative in support of charities,” said Soni and Strittmatter. “We have so many generous people at IUP, and it was rewarding to have us come together for SECA’s united mission of kindness.”
