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.”

Lunchbox Series explores timely topic: U.S. drones as counter-terrorism policy

January 20, 2014 at 7:52 am

The Lunchbox Series presents: "Drone Wars: Evaluating targeted killing as a tool of U.S. counter-terrorism policy" a lecture with Manger Professor of International Relations Beth Dougherty, Wednesday (Jan. 22) at 12:10 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.

Following the 9/11 attacks, the Bush administration authorized the arming of drones and began using them to kill specific targets in the "War on Terror."  The Obama administration has significantly expanded the use of armed drones, both in terms of the number of strikes and the countries in which they are being utilized. While U.S. officials argue that drone strikes are an effective and essential component of American counter-terrorism operations, critics have raised numerous concerns, including the number of civilian casualties.  Evaluating the various claims made by both sides of the argument is complicated by the secrecy surrounding the drone program.  This talk will explore some of the legal, moral, political, and strategic debates surrounding the use of drones for targeted killing.
