IUP participated in the annual State
Employee Combined Appeal (SECA) from September 4, 2018 through October 26,
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.”
