"The faculty/staff participation rate is higher than it's been in the eight years I've been here, and there's still time for it to grow," said Jim Livernois, director of annual giving programs. "If you haven't given yet, please consider making a gift to the Cor Fund by May 31."
With a week remaining in the fiscal year, participation in this year's Faculty/Staff Cor Fund Campaign has already exceeded its 70 percent goal, coming in at 72.1 percent.

"There is so much to do, and your support and encouragement is essential."
