The 2011 Fall Faculty/Staff Seminar proved to be an excellent time for faculty and staff to declare themselves fans of the students at UAPB. Over 80 individuals made donations, mostly through payroll deduction, to a fund to help students in dire need of financial support. As a token of appreciation, each person who made a gift to the fund receive a fan—a novel gift that declares what we all know to be true, “Students fan success at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff”. Join your colleagues listed below and demonstrate that you are a fan of our students. Make your gift by payroll deduction, or credit card. You may also come by the Development Office in Childress Hall and make your gift in person. If you would like for someone to come by your office and pick-up the gift, just give us a call at 575-8701. Whatever method you choose, we have a gift for you!
