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.”

A human-rights approach to health: the Ivan Stone lecture

November 4, 2010 at 12:16 pm

 

Alicia Ely Yamin, the Joseph H. Flom Fellow on Global Health and Human Rights at Harvard Law School and special advisor to Amnesty International’s global campaign on poverty, will present “A Rights-Based Approach to Health” on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 8 p.m., in Richardson Auditorium, in Morse-Ingersoll Hall. The lecture is presented under the sponsorship of the Ivan and Janice Stone World Outlook Endowment Fund.

A rights-based approach to health involves recognizing the basic human right to health, and allowing human rights standards and principles to guide health policy making and programming. Yamin, who received both her J.D. degree and a Master of Public Health degree from Harvard University, has worked extensively in this field. She has published numerous scholarly articles and books on rights-based approaches to health, and is particularly recognized as an advocate for maternal health.

The Stone Lecture is an event held during Beloit College’s annual International Education Week commemorating the contributions of Ivan Stone, former professor and dean of the college, and his wife Janice Stone. Both were strong advocates for international education and experience. The World Outlook Endowment Fund, which sponsors this annual lecture, also helps make study abroad possible for students with financial need.
