The College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) has established an Emergency Assistance Program to help our students during this COVID-19 pandemic.
"In these challenging times of the COVID-19 crisis, many of our students are facing dire circumstances: lost jobs, food and housing insecurity, unforeseen emergencies. To help our CLASS students experiencing these situations, I proudly announce the establishment of the CLASS Emergency Assistance Program." -- Dean Iris Levine
In the last month, the number of students reaching out for assistance due to the pandemic has been unprecedented. The Emergency Assistance Program will provide one-time stipends to address this urgent need, and to ensure that our CLASS students who are experiencing financial hardship are able to continue their education successfully.
The Dean’s Circle, the Advisory Board of CLASS, has pledged to match up to $5,000 towards this effort, and the Dean’s Office of CLASS has also allocated funds for this initiative.
On this Giving Day, please consider giving a gift to the Emergency Assistance Program.
A gift of any amount will greatly help our students during this critical time in our history.
Thank you for your support!
