Faculty and staff respond to call to support PSU

The public events are over, but Pittsburg State University director of annual giving Holly Kent wants PSU employees to know that there’s still plenty of time to give to the university. Kent said that although the annual faculty-staff campaign ended last week, employee contributions to the university will be counted as part of the campaign through the end of the fiscal year next June.

This year's campaign, "The Power of One," went well, Kent said, and the university is on track to have an excellent year in terms of faculty and staff giving.

"Most people who work here want to help students and make the university an even better place to work," Kent said.

Craig Fuchs, campaign co-chairman, said the high response "sends a strong message that those who are directly involved with the day-to day-operations of the university feel good about our programs and direction."

Kent said strong support from faculty and staff is important when the university turns to alumni and friends of the university for support.

"Others who are thinking about supporting the university look to see whether we are supporting our own," Kent said.

Kent said faculty and staff who are still interested in making a contribution to this year's campaign may earmark their gift for their own department, to scholarships or specific programs, or they may make the gift unrestricted, which allows the university to use the gift in the area of greatest need.
