After each kick off event, faculty and staff contributed $253,310.51 toward the $325,000 goal.

Special accolades go to the following five departments, which had 100 percent participation: the Dental Hygiene and Physician Assistant Programs in the College of Allied Health Sciences, the Maxwell Theatre, Career Services and the Office of Advancement.
