Tree of Caring Campaign

The “Tree of Caring” will be located on a wall in the lobby of new College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) building to recognize and appreciate donors who gave to the CHHS.

Tree of caring

The College of Health and Human Services Fund supports 18 different disciplines across undergraduate and graduate programs that all share a mission of caring and compassion within a professional framework. Gifts made to the College of Health and Human Services Fund will support practice-based learning opportunities for our students such as: 

  • Supervision in non-profit agencies that do not have licensed providers 
  • Stipends for students who cannot afford to give up paid jobs to complete internships
  • Support for transportation, parking, and other expenses related to internships
  • Professional development workshops, mentors, and events to support student transition from college to career 

Donors who make a gift of $100 or more to any CHHS program or scholarship between January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021 will be recognized on the Tree of Caring.
