“The challenges we are facing have created new and unexpected burdens on our students and employees,” said Pamella A. Henson, executive vice chancellor for University Advancement, which helped facilitate the fund’s creation as an avenue of philanthropic support. “We have never been more grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends, who are stepping forward to help as we navigate these difficult times.”
