2020-21 Goal

Our Progress



Your gift to UC through the Annual Fund provides vital funding for three key priorities identified by President Casamento:

  • College Scholarships
    These awards build on the foundation of affordability we established with the tuition reset, making it possible for a greater number of deserving students to choose UC, earn a degree, and graduate with less debt.
  • Tutoring and Learning Support
    The College’s Learning Commons on the Library’s ground floor (incorporating the Math and Science Center, Writing Center, and Kelly Teaching and Learning Center) offers our students the peer tutoring resources and advanced instructional technologies they need to achieve success.
  • Career Advancement Resources
    We connect students with professional opportunities through our Office of Career Services as well as through robust internship and career placement programs coordinated by specific academic departments.
