2021 UC Donor Impact Report

Each year University College reaches out to students who received funding from donor-supported scholarships and asks them to participate in an impact report titled, "In Their Own Words". Learn how your generosity is helping University College students achieve their full potential, inside the classroom and out in the community. Because of your support, our students are reaching their goals and pushing themselves towards greater heights of achievement.
