CANR Dean’s Strategic Initiatives Fund

Fellow Spartans and Friends:

As you think about making a gift to what means the most to you and what impact you want to have, I would ask you to consider supporting our students – our WHOLE students. Many of you may think about student success in terms of their grades, academic progress, or graduation rates. However, for some of our students, success may be measured by whether they have food to eat, a roof over their head, or the emotional support to navigate life. For others, it may mean being able to find funding to cover the last semester(s) of their graduate studies, when a global pandemic delayed the research project they have been working on for years.

I have the privilege of being a faculty member and administrator in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Michigan State University because OUR students choose to come here. Without them, we would not be a thriving academic institution. It is on us, all of us, to ensure that the whole person our students bring each day is supported to the best of our abilities. They are our future innovators and leaders.

Your Gift Will Support Our Students - Our WHOLE Students.

To support whole student success, our college turns to the Dean’s Strategic Initiatives Fund to help bridge those students and make sure those emergencies do not derail them from completing a class or making it to graduation. It is also the account used to create new opportunities that may otherwise go unfunded and the one that provides essential resources that will make a difference in our CANR community.

I hope that you will join me in supporting the “whole student success” of our CANR students by making a gift today!
