Now more than ever your Annual Fund gift provides unrestricted dollars which are crucial to Randolph’s ongoing financial well-being and ability to adapt in our rapidly changing world. From support for experiential learning opportunities and campus COVID prevention efforts to diversity and inclusion initiatives, Annual Fund gifts help Randolph continue its tradition of changing lives that can change the world. Areas of greatest need for your support include:
Campus COVID Prevention
These gifts prepare our campus for the future safe return of students by providing sanitation solutions, personal protective equipment for front-line staff, and NanoSeptic surfaces for high-traffic, high-touch campus spaces.
Diversity and Inclusion
These gifts to support diversity and inclusion provide programming and initiatives such as anti-bias and anti-racial training for faculty and staff as Randolph continues the conscientious work of serving the needs of all members of its community.
These gifts benefit Randolph’s first-generation college students by providing academic support services and scholarships. Our first-generation students are excited and hopeful about their future, but often they are also uncertain about navigating higher education. Your Annual Fund gift helps ensure these students’ success from their first year to their graduation.
These gifts ensure that deserving students who may not otherwise be able to attend Randolph receive the opportunity to experience a life-changing liberal arts education regardless of how much they are able to pay. Both need- and merit-based scholarships are among the highest priorities of the College.
Experiential Learning Opportunities
These gifts allow students to engage in real-world research and problem-solving, pursue transformative internships, and apply for RISE (Randolph Innovative Student Experience) awards that can fund a meaningful educational experience beyond the confines of the traditional classroom.
These gifts provide software, laptops, webcams, and WiFi hotspots to ensure that Randolph students have the best possible online learning experience as they continue their classes at home while staying safe.
These gifts help the College attract and retain stellar faculty, while also providing necessary funds for professional development and faculty research projects. Thanks to support of this area, Randolph’s talented faculty can conduct meaningful research and participate in professional development opportunities that enhance their exceptional teaching abilities.
Campus Sustainability and Beautification
These gifts guarantee funds for eco-friendly sustainability initiatives and renovation projects to keep our historic campus both beautiful and energy-efficient. Features like the Organic Garden and Michels Plaza illustrate Randolph’s commitment to maintaining its pristine campus while also honoring its long-standing dedication to environmental sustainability.
