Needed: Stories that show the impact of gifts to CALS

The campus Share the Wonderful steering committee wants to assemble a collection of good stories about the impacts of contributions from our supporters. There are plenty of those stories in CALS, and we want to make sure they’re included. In addition to encouraging further gifts, this may also create new opportunities to further recognize those whose generosity led to these positive impacts.

Possibilities for these impact stories run the gamut—a student who was able to study abroad because of private support, a department that was able to retain a faculty member or hire a new one, a Ph.D. candidate who was able to attend a big conference. It would be great to get at least 5–8 stories from CALS. If you have ideas, please send them to Kara Luedtke at
