Student Persistence at MSOE
Every Gift Matters, Make a Difference Today
In the past month, our daily lives have been thrown into chaos as the COVID-19 crisis has unfolded – first across our screens, then across our communities. At the onset of the crisis, MSOE faculty, staff and students worked together as a community to rapidly move our curriculum online so our students could learn while keeping themselves healthy and safe.
In the weeks to come, our communities will require all of us to come together to fight the virus and care for those who are impacted by it. This includes some of the most vulnerable members of the MSOE community, our students.
In some instances, students have lost a part-time job that supported their education. We are also learning of student needs that include funds for travel to return home to their loved ones, having enough money to buy food, housing insecurity, transportation and medical issues. Additionally, some students are facing the unexpected challenge of paying their tuition which impacts their ability to complete the academic year. To respond to the needs of our students, MSOE has established the Student Persistence Fund.
Private philanthropy will be a powerful force in the recovery of our university, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and our entire country.
If you are wondering how you can help MSOE in these turbulent times, we invite you to make a gift in support of our incredibly hardworking students. A gift of any size matters. Please consider making a gift today.
