Purpose

Student engagement is at the core of what we do in Student Affairs. Taking a leadership role in a student organization, participating in an alternative break, internship or other immersive experience is an opportunity to impact the community and gain the skills that stand out to future employers, By removing the financial barriers to student engagement, more students can benefit from these transformational experiences.

Pryor-Garnett Endowed Leadership Fund
