University leaders launched the 2011 Faculty/Staff Annual Fund recently with goals of $501,000 and 70 percent participation. Dr. Fred Meyer, professor and chair of orthopaedics, and Dean of Students Michael Mitchell will serve as co-chairs of the 2011 Faculty/Staff Annual Fund. The theme of this year’s campaign is “The Power of You.”
This year represents the ninth consecutive Faculty/Staff Annual Fund campaign. Funds raised directly support University students, programs and those served by the University. The campaign's annual success is in great part due to the division or department representatives who distribute campaign brochures, posters, and pledge cards.
