Letter from the President

Dear friends,

Access! At our recent Scholarship and Donor Recognition Reception, UW‑Fond du Lac student Sandra Nett spoke on behalf of 41 students as they received over $36,000 in scholarships. I couldn’t help but notice the thread of access woven into her story.

That one word complements the core mission of UW-Fond du Lac, as well as the UW‑Fond du Lac Foundation. UW-Fond du Lac offers:

  • Access to excellent, student-centered education;
  • Access to small classes, which allow personal attention from professors;
  • Access to local education;
  • Access to affordable education;
  • Access to multiple Bachelor Degree Completion programs;
  • Access to UW four-year campuses through the Guaranteed Transfer program.

Sandra shared her story as a non-traditional student who balances school and family commitments while she pursues a degree in art therapy. She didn’t attend college after high school. She thought that opportunity had passed. A friend encouraged her to visit UW‑Fond du Lac. She did. Soon, the personal interaction with UW‑Fond du Lac faculty and staff made the impossible seem possible. She now encourages each of us to make a difference and help a student on the path to success.

This is your opportunity to provide access to education. You can make the difference in a student’s life…make the impossible possible. It is an investment in a person. It is an investment in our community. It is an investment in our future. As the President of the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation Board I am committed to the UW-Fond du Lac mission. I invite you to join me in providing access to education for students like Sandra.
