2015 Faculty and Staff Annual Campaign: No Longer a Trend

For the fourth consecutive year, the St. Thomas Faculty and Staff Annual Campaign achieved a participation rate of better than 50 percent. The final tally of 54 percent should land St. Thomas at or near the top of all colleges and universities in Minnesota. (Final results have not been reported by all Minnesota institutions.)

In fiscal year 2015, 785 faculty and staff members made gifts to the university. To each of these donors, the Annual Giving Department offers its sincere gratitude. Results such as these can no longer be considered an exception. It has become the expectation.

Three divisions of St. Thomas achieved 100-percent participation. Congratulations to:

  • Student Affairs (five years in a row)
  • Enrollment Services (four years in a row)
  • Institutional Advancement (four years in a row)

In addition to these divisions, several departments had 100-percent participation:

  • Business Office
  • Office of the General Counsel
  • Geography Department
  • Physical Plant Administration
  • Selim Center for Learning in Later Years
  • Treasury Office

Several other divisions reached better than 50-percent participation:

  • Human Resources
  • Information Resources and Technologies
  • President’s Staff
  • School of Law
  • School of Social Work

The Faculty and Staff Annual Campaign is only one example of the gifts that we share with every student, every day, every year. Thank you!
