Webster’s first Student Engagement & Philanthropy Day is Feb. 28

Webster University is participating in CASE ASAP’s (Council for Advancement and Support of Education Affiliated Student Advancement Programs) first Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day on Feb. 28, when institutional members will organize events and activities to enhance awareness and engagement of students in higher education advancement around the world.

Seventy-five institutions from all over the world are participating, including: Auburn University, The University of Sydney, Butler University, Bradley University, Carnegie Melon University, Kansas State, The Ohio State, Saint Louis University, Seton Hill University, University of Evansville, University of Virginia and Villanova University.) For a full list of universities and activities, visit the CASE ASAP website.

Webster University will offer three activities staffed by the Student Ambassadors.

  • The “Gorlok Walking,” where ambassadors will videotape students while quizzing their knowledge of the university and philanthropy.
  • A Thank-a-Thon, during which students can sign thank you postcards to you alumni donors. Tables will be set up during lunch in the University Center and Marletto’s and before night classes in the East Academic Building and Sverdrup.
  • “Button Day,” during which faculty and staff who have donated during the current fiscal year will be given a button that says “I Give It, I Got It, Philanthropy @ Webster.” Student Ambassadors will hand deliver these starting Feb. 25. The buttons will make students aware of giving to the university and show that the faculty and staff give back in time, talent and treasure. Students who  participate in the Gorlok Walking or the Thank-a-Thon will also receive a button.

    I LOVE my button! Thanks to the students who delivered it to my office. The encounter made me happy to be a donor to student scholarship.
