Strengthening the workforce of the future
Experiential learning programs are open to all students but are not available in all fields. Recognizing the value of these programs in demonstrating workforce ready skills, Dr. John M. De Pasquale (M.P.H. ’07) established a legacy gift to help more Public Health students access these opportunities. “With its emphasis on solving domestic, urban public health issues and the diversity of its students, the School of Public Health at Georgia State is where I feel my money can make the biggest impact,” said De Pasquale.
Read more about his gift and how it will help future School of Public Health students gain skills that will help them land a job after graduation.
Eliminating achievement gaps
The university is a national model for its extraordinary student success. Because of its innovative programs that remove barriers to achievement and provide meaningful support, the university has increased graduation rate by 23 points over the last decade. Recognizing that faculty diversity plays a central role in college completion, donors Kevin Lofton (MHA ’79) and Sabrina Shannon have made a special gift so that the university can attract exceptional assistant professors with a demonstrated commitment to racial diversity.
Read more about Kevin and Sabrina and why they were inspired to make this transformational gift.
“The generosity of Georgia State’s donors has impacted me on such a deep level, not only on my university experiences but on my future,” said Nitheyaa Shree. “Without their support of the Presidential Scholarship, I wouldn’t have been able to attend Georgia State.”
