Asher and Heckert to Lead 2005 Faculty and Staff Campaign

All faculty and staff will receive information this week about supporting the Truman State University Foundation through the 2005 Faculty and Staff Campaign. The campaign is led by Nancy Asher, coordinator of testing and reporting, and Teresa Heckert, associate professor of psychology.

“This is an important year for us as we begin to lay the groundwork for a major campaign in the future.” Heckert said. “Through our donations, we, the faculty and staff of Truman, can demonstrate that we believe in what we are doing here.”

“Several new funds have been established that faculty and staff can contribute to, as well as many others,” Asher said. “Visit the Web site to view a complete list and descriptions of the funds ( A gift of any size is appreciated and will go toward making a big difference in the lives of students and the Truman community.”

Each year private gifts from faculty and staff help fund a wide variety of academic scholarships, study abroad, faculty development and research, additional support for each of the academic divisions and cultural programs like the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series. This year, all gifts to the campaign will qualify faculty and staff for a drawing to win a parking space in the faculty and staff lot of their choice until Dec. 31, 2005.
