Where There's a Need ...

The world around UCM constantly changes, and the dynamism of our campus reflects this. It may be a traveling international art exhibit, classroom innovations, a campus food pantry or West African drums for an intro music class. Or it could be scholarships that retain students and help them finish their last semester to graduate. Where there’s a need by a student, faculty member or the university, the Fund for Excellence is our “go to” funding source, thanks especially to gifts from our alumni. Read more.
