UCM Community United in Support during the Holidays
Before Thanksgiving, the angel tree contained tags with Christmas wishes from 36 children of students and employees at UCM. Faculty, staff and even classes of students selected a tag or two from the tree and went shopping for the needs and wishes listed.
To ensure confidentiality, this program is run out of the Office of Human Resources by Michelle Taylor and Carla Underwood, who began it last year after being approached by the professional and support staff councils, and the Office of the President. Last year’s tree was a great success, which is continuing this year — all angels were adopted before Thanksgiving break.
"We are very fortunate that we get to see all the blessings," says Taylor. "Every family that came in last year was very thankful for the support."
Some people choose to make cash donations, and there have even been donations of wrapping paper, mittens and small toys that parents can pick up as stocking stuffers.
"I'm glad to know I'll be able to impact kids both in the classroom and at home," says Alexandria Martin, an Elementary Education major and gift donor. "This is a good thing to be a part of."
The angel tree program encourages a culture of service among the students and staff who exemplify of what learning to a greater degree means at UCM.
Governor Proposes Funding Increase for Tuition Freeze
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has announced that he will recommend to the legislature a proposal to increase state funding for colleges and universities by 5 percent in Fiscal Year 2015, if schools are willing to maintain tuition at the current level. If approved by the legislature, this means a possible increase of approximately $2.6 million to help the University of Central Missouri meet its strategic priorities.
