The Impact of Your Support
Starting in Fall 2022, a new “professional and career readiness” program became a required component of the curriculum for MIS students. Through this new program, students develop their professionals skills by participating in career-related activities outside of the classroom. Your support will enable us to provide professional development opportunities for our MIS students including our MIS student club, student-industry networking events, and visits with industry leaders.
Why We Need Your Support
We must rely on donations to provide extracurricular activities to enhance the professional and career development of our MIS students. Your support will be especially important during this time as the university budget continues to be constrained.
For this year’s WWU Give Day/Week we request your support to fund our “professional and career readiness” initiatives for the upcoming academic year. Our goal is to raise $2,500. Donations of any size are welcome and appreciated!
Donations made during this year's WWU Give Day/Week may be matched as follows:
- The first $250 in gifts to the MIS program will be matched dollar for dollar by one of the program's supporters (up to $50 per donor).
- Other gifts may be matched through other WWU Give Day matching opportunities.
- Does your employer match gifts to a university? If so, then your employer may be able to match a portion of your donation.
Thank you for your support -- your gift will make a difference to our students!
