2013 Education and Research Fund Donors

The mission of the ACUI Education and Research Fund is to provide financial support to enhance the experience of Association members. Gifts to the Education and Research Fund are used to maintain its commitment to ACUI’s mission, provide financial support for students, and encourage research opportunities among members. 

To honor individuals, families, and corporations who make outstanding contributions to the fund, the program team recognizes donors making cash contributions to either the Annual Fund or the Scholarship and Awards Endowment. We wish to honor those who have given so generously over the years. 

Through members’ contributions, the Education and Research Fund Program Team has been able to more than quadruple the number of scholarships given annually. Many important awards have also been endowed (including the Revis A. Cox Memorial Scholarship and the Adell McMillan Memorial Scholarship), allowing those awards to be sustained long into the future. The amount of research being conducted in the college union and student activities field has also increased, and contributions are supporting the proliferation of knowledge in our profession.

Giving levels represent lifetime cumulative giving (or at least since 1998). Purchases made at an auction at the annual conference are not included in these levels. If you have a concern or comment about these levels, please contact Zack Wahlquist, director of student and professional development, at zwahlqui@acui.org or 812.245.8053.
