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.”

Macademia: It's sort of like Facebook for faculty

January 19, 2011 at 4:06 pm


Macademia, a tool for connecting colleagues who share research interests, already has more than 240 ACM faculty members participating, according to Associated Colleges of the Midwest vice president John Ottenhoff.

As a feature article about Macademia on the ACM website explains, it takes just a few minutes for faculty to register on the site and to list their research interests. The functionality is obvious; by hovering over a name, users are able to see in an instant a particular scholar’s institution, research interests, and contact info. It’s also possible to find people by area of expertise. A new feature, “Calls for Collaboration,” allows colleagues to seek partners for projects. This feature might also be useful to you when seeking out reviewers or experts from ACM colleges.

“And not to be competitive about this, but it looks like two ACM Deans have led the way and signed up for Macademia,” Ottenhoff says. “Who? Enter the site and search for ‘faculty development’ and ‘assessment’ and find the leaders!” (We don't want to give it away, but one of them rhymes with Shmann Shmavies.)
