Helping Students in a Time of Need

It goes without saying that this has been a year of change. Our students and faculty are learning and teaching in new ways, but our commitment to providing outstanding educational opportunities is unwavering.

As we continue adjust to challenges created by the COVID-19 outbreak, our students face challenges of their own. Your gift to the Student Emergency Fund provides direct assistance to those we serve who find themselves in particularly difficult circumstances during this time.

Visit and designate your contribution for the Student Emergency Fund. To learn more about the fund or share information with a student in need, visit

Together, we make a difference. Together, we change lives. Together, we are The W.
