CHHS is #1 in the 2014 Senior Challenge!
The results of the Senior Challenge are in! This year’s Senior Challenge encouraged some friendly competition between the Colleges to identify the top two academic areas with the highest percentage of participation among graduating seniors. Thanks to a $5,000 challenge gift from a recent graduate and her family, those two areas will receive additional funding.
Congratulations to the College of Health and Human Services and the College of Arts & Sciences for taking the top two spots. The College of Health and Human Services has a senior participation rate of 21.63%, with the School of Social Work leading the way with a 32.43% senior participation rate. The School of Social Work will be awarded $3,000 of the challenge gift. The College of Arts & Sciences had the second highest senior participation rate of 18.57% and will receive $2,000 of the challenge gift.
We are grateful for your partnership to get seniors excited about making their first gifts to UNCW and for your help in spreading the word about the challenge. Thanks to your efforts and the great work of the senior class giving committee, over 480 seniors from the Class of 2013-2014 made a contribution, with gifts totaling over $13,000 for various programs across campus. This is a true testament to the UNCW experience and our amazing faculty and staff.
Again, we appreciate your constructive feedback and support of this initiative as well as all of our annual giving efforts. We look forward to the possibility of conducting other college-level competitions in the future.
