Faculty members at Houston’s health university hold a unique responsibility to go beyond simply educating students: The UTHealth mission also requires us to model best practices in clinical care and public health. As an additional way to support UTHealth students, the 2014 Faculty Campaign for Students is now raising funds to increase student scholarships, and faculty of the School of Dentistry are invited to participate.
The theme for this year’s campaign is “The Best Ideas Come from Within.”
The faculty campaign is an opportunity to make a direct and beneficial impact on our students’ lives, to connect with them in a meaningful way at a critical time in their careers, and to see a gift in action in a very personal and visible way. This year, UTHealth President Giuseppe N. Colasurdo, MD, has graciously offered to match aggregate gifts up to $100,000 to show his support of the campaign.
The 2014 Faculty Campaign for Students began April 1 and will run through May 16, but all gifts and pledges made through the end of the fiscal year (Aug. 31, 2014) will count toward faculty giving.
