While the DLC is geared for cumulative giving above $25,000, individuals or organizations that make an annual contribution of $1,000 or more to the School of Education are recognized as Aspiring Members of the DLC. Donors in the Aspiring Membership level will enjoy all the benefits that Lifetime Members receive for a 12-month period. At the end of 12 months, donors may choose to re-enroll and continue on the path to Lifetime Membership. Gifts may support any area of the donor’s choosing in the School of Education, including student scholarships, faculty research, or program support.
“Members of the Dean’s Leadership Circle are our most generous supporters, and their generosity advances the School of Education’s excellence in very direct ways, in particular on the work of our students and faculty,” said Interim Dean Paul Hastings. “We could not do so much without their support.”
Lifetime Members, including both individuals and organizations, are honored for cumulative cash, endowed, pledged, and documented estate gifts totaling $25,000 or more to the School of Education. Gifts may support any area of the donor’s choosing in the School of Education, including student scholarships, faculty research, or program support.
