UConn Gives kicked off at 7am this morning and for a 36 hour period the Department of Public Policy (DPP) is all paws in to raise money and make an impact on our amazing students. DPP alumni are working all across the country to impact their communities, and many of them are serving our local community right here in Connecticut. The 2021 DPP UConn Gives fund goes toward Student Hardship, and last week we answered a few questions about our fund and UConn Gives.
Every dollar matters and can make an impact on the lives of students who are experiencing a personal financial emergency. Each year at orientation we remind our students that if they look to their left and right, those folks will be standing right beside them at graduation. Our network is continually growing and expanding our network of support. Help us share the impact of the DPP and influence the impact of our students on our community.
For the last six days we have been counting down the ways the DPP has made an impact on our lives through new messages and some of our favorite highlights.
Our Outreach Coordinator Lian Kish is quick to note, “for almost four years I have had the unique privilege of sharing moments of IMPACT from the DPP Network with folks from around the world. Each and every day members of our community strive to create a positive world. They each do this through their own unique definition of public service. Help us make an impact on the students who are impacting our communities!”
