Faculty/Staff Annual Giving Campaign Kicks Off with Celebration

March Madness is here! The Faculty/Staff Annual Giving Campaign kicked off Thursday, Feb. 27, with barbeque, music and fun in celebration of raising money for student scholarships and programs.

The Faculty/Staff Annual Giving Campaign allows UHD employees the opportunity to celebrate our students and programs by giving back to UHD. Employees can fill out their pledge cards and make gifts to the Annual Fund during the entire month of March.

During the event, Tim Redl, associate math professor, gave an introduction and shared contribution results from last year and year-to-date. He also introduced the student speaker, Stefani Rodriguez, who is honorary student co-chair and a university scholarship recipient.

Lastly, Dr. Flores spoke about the importance of our faculty and staff contributions and thanked everyone for their continued support.

The committee of UHD faculty and staff that is spearheading the March event include:

  • Stefani Rodriguez, Honorary Student Co-Chair
  • Tim Redl (College of Science & Technology), Co-chair
