Challenging Borders: Emerson Alternative Spring Break 2015

Students in Emerson College's Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program are raising $6,000 to cover transportation, housing, and food costs for this year's service learning trip to El Paso, TX to discover first-hand the impact of immigration laws in the US on our communities and those seeking to gain entry into the country. The El Paso ASB program offers students the opportunity to better understand the issue of immigration in US border communities and learn about the issues of economic development, food justice, and human rights at the US/Mexico border. Through this Border Immersion Experience, students will develop the knowledge and consciousness to make a positive impact in the Greater Boston community upon their return.

Student Emergency Assistance Fund at Penn State Harrisburg

Penn State Harrisburg Alumnus, Mr. Ted Kauffman (‘71 Bus.) has extended a challenge gift to support students at the college who are in greatest need of financial assistance. He has generously offered to match contributions up to the amount of $100,000. This Student Emergency Assistance Fund campaign is one of several ongoing efforts to fulfill Ted’s challenge and maximize resources available to students. WE ARE partnering with members of the Penn State family, and the broader community to raise money for students who need it most! Together, we can help keep students enrolled, support their ambitions, and make sure that all students have the critical support they need to achieve their goals regardless of financial hardship or inability to pay. Donations to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund will help address personal and family emergencies, and alleviate the significant financial burden that so many students face.
