United Way: Making Change in the Community

There’s still time for you to help make change in the community by pledging to the University’s United Way campaign. The University campaign topped the $1 million mark this
week and to date has raised nearly 75 percent toward the $1.4 million
goal. See how your department stacks up against others at the University.
