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.”

Eddie Moore to discuss race, power, privilege, and the n-word

January 22, 2013 at 6:50 am

According to Eddie Moore, the use of the n-word is as prevalent as ever, and it needs to be discussed.

That’s what he’ll be doing on Tuesday at 8 p.m., in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall, when he presents “Martin Luther King, Jr. and the N-word.”

“In light of the recent movie Django, national racial incidents, and negative responses to President Obama’s re-election, it's time for some courageous conversations about the past, present, and future impact of the n-word,” Moore says. “An event commemorating MLK is the perfect setting for the honest dialogue. What would MLK say about Django—and the n-word—today?”

A diversity educator and the founder and director of the White Privilege Conference, Moore explores the interplay of race, power, and privilege, and he hopes his work makes people examine their own relationship to the slur. “We will grapple with questions related to how, after all these years since the "I Have a Dream" speech by MLK, we can say there's been progress when that word is so ever-present in society today.”

Like all events during the Martin Luther King, Jr. week, Moore’s lecture is free and open to the public.
