Your gift funds critical, educational resources for both students and faculty. When you support Western Libraries, you support teaching and learning throughout the entire university.
It is through the generosity of donors like you the Libraries can support student and faculty needs in the following areas:
- Western Libraries Student Employee Opportunity Fund: Your gift helps support library student employees' engagement in professional development and scholarship opportunities by funding registration fees, travel expenses and other costs associated with professional growth. Western Libraries Student Advisory Group will play an active role in recommending the best way to use these funds in order to make the most positive impact on Libraries student employees.
- Carmen Werder Teaching-Learning Academy (TLA) Legacy Fund: The TLA engages students, faculty and staff through dialogue which explores the intersection between teaching and learning. Your gift will provide opportunities for students to engage as co-inquirers in the scholarship of teaching and learning and attend local and international conferences where they can present their research and share the TLA experience with others.
- Hacherl Research & Writing Studio Fund: The Hacherl Research & Writing Studio is a vibrant environment in Western Libraries focused on three integrated academic literacies: research, writing, and reading. At the Studio, a dynamic team of dedicated professionals, including specially-trained students, promote inquiry, agency and collaboration in order to help both undergraduate and graduate students realize their full potential. Your gift supports the staffing, training and technology costs associated with creating and running the Studio’s in-person and online instructional services.
Thank you for your generosity and your support of Teaching & Learning at Western Libraries!
