Education First Response Fund
The challenges of the past year have shined a spotlight on the value of skilled educators and the critical work they do. By making your gift to our Education First Response Fund, you will provide resources that can help us prepare our students for new challenges to come in technology and virtual instruction. You’ll support our efforts to increase representation in the classroom from diverse student groups and to graduate well-rounded educators who can help children to be mentally, physically, and intellectually successful.
Gifts to the Education First Response Fund support multiple areas of need in the College of Education:
- Our many online degree programs provide flexible and convenient opportunities for educators to further their education on their terms.
- Programs like Apple Core Initiative help us provide career pathways to the classroom for underrepresented students while assisting with the South Carolina teacher shortage.
- With help from supporters like you, we can provide opportunities for our students to study a broad variety of subjects, including counseling and physical activity, giving them a knowledge base to boost their future students’ success in and out of the classroom.
Your gift to the Education First Response Fund helps our college respond to challenges in real time, so we can adapt and accelerate in response to the emerging changes in the field. Our success is made possible by you!
