Dear Class of 2022 100 Senior Honorary members,
Congratulations on such a prestigious accomplishment! The change you have inspired as a student leader is unmatched. It is certain that you have left a lasting mark on this wonderful university in your own way and we are grateful that you accepted the charge to continue to be a thought provoker and change agent beyond commencement.
As you are soon to be alumni, we hope that we can count on you to continue your commitment to influence positive change in our Emory communities. We're calling on all 100 Senior Honorary members to make one last impact as students by supporting and promoting student flourishing at Emory.
Last year, the 2021 100 Senior Honorary cohort reached 45% participation in their plight to increase funding for student support funds like the Food Security Fund and the Student Hardship! With your support we know that we can accomplish 100% participation this year, plus gifts from friends, family, and alumni.
Your desire to propel student flourishing has inspired us to support the 2022 100 Senior Honorary cohort’s efforts. For every twenty, 100 senior honorary members who make a gift, an additional $50 of challenge money will be unlocked and dispersed amongst these funds in your honor. If we accomplish our goal of 100% participation amongst the cohort, we will unlock a total of $250 in challenge funds, which will provide critical support to students in need.
A $5 gift is all it takes to support and effect change in the lives of students in need. Your gift, of any size, will make a difference! You can learn more about the impact your gift would make for each fund below. Also, if you haven't already made a gift to Emory during your senior year, this is an opportunity to earn your Blue Tassel.
Together, your impact will ensure you leave Emory as a more equitable and inclusive university. We thank you for your extraordinary commitment to Emory.
Direct Student Support
The new Emory Food Security Fund will help fight food insecurity directly within the Emory student community by allowing students experiencing food insecurity to purchase their own food during breaks, while living off-campus, and during remote learning. If you are a student experiencing need, fill out this form to get direction to necessary services.
The Student Hardship Fund (SHF) was formed in 2011 to support Emory students facing unexpected financial hardship. The fund aids both undergraduates and graduates at Emory University across all nine schools on the Atlanta and Oxford campuses. By providing financial assistance to support students during catastrophic events, such as a death in the family, unexpected job loss, uninsured medical expenses, and eviction, the Student Hardship Fund allows Emory students to continue their education despite the obstacles they are facing.
Diversity and Inclusion Programming- The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI), guided by Emory's Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Carol E. Henderson, creates spaces for faculty, staff, and students to work and learn in inclusive, equitable, safe, and diverse environments where they thrive and bring their whole selves to our campus community.
All Class of 2022 student donors to this campaign will receive a Blue Tassel. Keep your commemorative Blue Tassel to display for years to come on your rearview mirror, as part of your framed diploma, or as a conversation starter on the office wall of your first job! Please note that the university's regalia policy states that the official black tassel must be worn at Commencement (but your blue tassel can be added to your cap).
