Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Making Critical Connections: Workshops on Teaching International Development in the Liberal Arts

August 6, 2010 at 8:16 am

Faculty members from Beloit and Colorado Colleges will organize two inter-linked workshops on teaching international development. The first workshop, to be held in January 2011, will bring together 10-12 ACM faculty from various disciplines to discuss and share their strategies on and experience with teaching development. The second workshop, scheduled for May 2011, will build upon the initial group of 10-12 by inviting the international education directors and/or service-learning liaisons from each of the partner institutions. Project leaders Jennifer Esperanza (anthropology, Beloit College) and Rachel Ellet (political science, Beloit College) identify the goals of both workshops as discussing how a liberal arts education can best be used to critically examine, approach, and engage in development topics/projects at both local and global levels; to examine effective means of providing students with an understanding of development that integrates various disciplinary perspectives and innovative teaching practices; and to find ways to integrate students' "venture" and hands-on experiences with theoretical issues of international and community development.
