The Viking Gift Committee, the young alumni fundraising committee, raised over $5,000 for the Diversity Center in two weeks. Erin Campbell Watson '09 and Gayatri Malhotra '14 led the effort on this project.
"As our Lawrence community continues to grow and become more diverse, we also need to enhance the necessary resources and services that foster student success. The Diversity Center is much more than a department or location. For many, it’s home. It’s a supportive community, it’s personal growth, it’s leadership development, it’s education, awareness, and knowledge…all essential components in retention and overall academic success." - Pa Lee Moua, associate dean of students for diversity
“We thought it might be meaningful to explore fundraising opportunities related to campus inclusivity and the student organizations involved. This is a powerful way for young alumni to show current students that we support them and make an impact on the campus climate that will really demonstrate the meaning of our donations, no matter how small, to current students.” - Erin '09
