We Are Changing Lives
Independence. Connection. Acceptance. While many of us may take these things for granted, students in the College of Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences know how challenging some of these things are to obtain. They dedicate their lives to creating new possibilities for their patients and clients.
You have seen these new doors be opened in your own career. You helped somebody walk again, safely get behind the wheel, interact in the community, or re-engage with their family. You understand the difference these students will make in the lives of others.
That’s why today we’re asking you to help future generations of students who want to be just like you. They want to change lives. We’re asking you to help change their lives. Your donations to the Dean’s Excellence Fund support student scholarships, provide access to clinics, and help to maintain equipment.
We are giving you several choices to show your support.Give to the professional program of your choice, or choose one of the funds named in honor of special individuals who have changed our lives.We are engaging in some good-natured competition among our programs.Dean Kangas has offered $1,000 in prize money to the programs based on the funds they raise.
Join us. Help us in changing lives, for our patients, for our professions, for our students.
As one client of the Fluency Disorders Clinic said,
“If I had known the things that I would have gone through during this clinic beforehand I never would have went. Now that I’ve been through it, there’s nothing you could have done to stop me from attending. It’s changed my life.”
