Student Affairs' Greatest Needs
Student Affairs Greatest Needs
Help us transform the lives of Lions by supporting programs and services that inspire students to pursue their passions, expand their knowledge, and form leaders who are committed to changing the world.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are core components of creating people who are with and for others. Your support in this area provides programs, services, and opportunities for Lions to learn and engage in diverse communities and cultures as they become global citizens. In addition, scholarships for international students ensure the diversity of our student body.
Wellness programs ensure Lions reach their full potential in their academic endeavors and life outside the classroom with a focus on health and well-being. Your support in this area ensures our students stay healthy physically, emotionally and mentally.
Funding in this area fuels opportunities for students to develop and enhance their leadership skills including interpersonal communication, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, public speaking, diversity and inclusion, and more. It also helps students connect to the world through interactive community-based learning and service immersion opportunities that inspire lifelong social action.
