[bs_col class=”col-sm-8″]The Office for Equity and Diversity is eager to launch its first-ever Diversity Student Emergency Fund. The fund is a one-time grant providing financial support to students facing a crisis or unexpected expenses, such as an accident, illness, a death of a family
member, fire damage or need for temporary housing. To maximize resources, create a network and strengthen partnerships, these funds are a collaborative effort with various student services across campus. Pools of funding and resources will help students navigate long-term financial goals. Now you can be a part of the network. Your donation will get students back on their feet, so they can continue to pursue their college career.
