“I am literally in tears because I thought I was going to have to take a semester off to pay my remaining balance. Thanks to you all, I am able to enroll in the spring and graduate. Thank you, thank you. A million times thank you!” Here is one of many notes received by the UCM Foundation after providing financial support to 40 students who were about to drop out of college despite their hard work and dedication. Everyone can help. Make a tax deductible year-end gift today at ucmo.edu/giveonline
International Alumnus Praises American Culture in Egypt
Abdullah Amer came to UCM for a year as a NESA Scholar, a U.S. Department of State program developed for students from underrepresented countries. When he returned to his native country, Egypt, he had a positive experience to share. The international alumnus now impacts hundreds of Egyptian students by sharing what he learned in the U.S. through the “Spread Your English” initiative. Abdullah explained, “UCM and the NESA program made a revolutionary change in my character. Now because of them, our university is also much better. I transferred my experience, activities, skills and everything that I received from UCM and the NESA program to our university in Cairo and we really all appreciate this.” Abdullah’s story fosters the positive impact of the internationalization of higher education.
Students Learn from Alumni and Vice Versa
The University of Central Missouri hosted the State Farm National Competition Nov. 6, inviting business students from across the nation to defend best marketing practices. This initiative was started five years ago by a group of UCM alumni working for State Farm. The outcomes are hands-on experience and new connections for students as well as fresh and innovative ideas for the nationally recognized insurance company.
