Student hardship funds

Our own hardship funds are providing immediate support to those students who require financial assistance at this time.  The University has taken steps to increase these funds but we still require more if we are able to help all those in crisis.  Please consider making a gift to support our student community.

Thank you to everyone in our community for your support of these initiatives, and for your care towards one another, during this difficult time.
