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.”

President Bierman announces new reporting lines, titles

January 17, 2013 at 4:06 pm

As a result of the late-May retirement plans of longtime Vice President John Nicholas (and hastened by the need to begin recruiting Nicholas' replacement) President Scott Bierman yesterday announced a handful of reporting-line shifts and title changes that will come with this end-of-academic year departure.

Essentially Bierman, after consultation with senior staff and members of the college’s board of trustees, plans to divide the current administration division at Beloit into two separate pieces—one under a vice president for budget and planning and treasurer (TBD), and a second under a newly named vice president for human resources and operations (current Director of Human Resources Lori Rhead). The college’s accounting employees will serve in the budget and planning division, while all the current employees and offices in physical plant, grounds, human resources, risk management, and security will be a part of the new HR and operations area.

The college’s print shop, as well as the Turtle Creek Bookstore manager, will also see changes as a part of this new structure. Both will be a part of the Office of Communications and Marketing when all these changes officially take place on June 1.

President Bierman spent much of his day Wednesday speaking with staff in the different offices and divisions involved in these moves. He followed that on Thursday morning with a meeting with a dozen student leaders, including representatives from the Round Table and BSC, to explain the rationale behind these moves in greater detail. The entire campus community got the news when Bierman emailed the campus just before noon on Thursday (if you missed it, check your inbox for an email with the subject line of “Title and Reporting Line Changes”).

In that email, Bierman wrote: “The objective, as you surely can see, is to better enhance the smartest possible decision-making in support of the college’s mission while ensuring, as much as possible, rewarding and productive work-life experiences for all our employees.”

In his meeting with student leaders, the president took pains to address one concern that he had—that these moves may somehow fuel speculation about plans to outsource physical plant personnel or work.

“I want to tell you that there have been no conversations about that. This is not something we are considering,” Bierman told the students who met with him at 9 a.m. Thursday in the Middle College conference room. “Frankly, it wouldn’t make sense for us to do that.”
