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.”

Trustees meeting recap: approving nominees, promotions

May 1, 2013 at 11:23 pm

The college’s board of trustees were on campus last weekend and stayed very busy. Among their work: approving the nominees for graduation and emeriti status, approving promotions for four faculty members, blessing the 2013-14 budget, and re-electing four of their own.

In between attending performances and the Beloit Relays, trustees conducted the usual business of  getting updates on the college’s recruitment and branding efforts, had a large-scale discussion of the new Liberal Arts in Practice fundraising module, examined the college’s risk management plans, and tackled many other topics. Here is a quick rundown of the news coming out of this spring’s meeting:

Seniors, you may go now:

The board, as it must, granted permission for the senior class to be conferred degrees. Likewise, the board must, and did, approve proposals for granting emeriti status to retiring professors Jerry Gustafson and Brock Spencer, and outgoing Vice President for Administration and Treasurer John Nicholas.

Four new full professors:

Four members of the faculty had their promotions to full professor approved by the board. Those promoted were: Darrah Chavey, Natalie Gummer, Cynthia McCown, and Sue Swanson.

Re-elected for three-year terms:

Four trustees were also re-elected to three-year terms on the board: Joanna Kutter’95, Steve Mahle’67, Jim Packard, and Nina Weissberg’84.
