President Nugent - Alumni Message

Publication Date



President Nugent discusses alumni connections amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Titan Student Emergency Fund, and future Titan Talks featuring alumni presentations and panels.

The Titan Student Emergency Fund (https://www.iwu.edu/giving/emergency-fund.html) provides assistance to students who undergo unforeseen financial challenges. Gifts to this fund help students maintain their best college experience and achieve their educational goal -- becoming an Illinois Wesleyan graduate.

Instances for assistance are critical for students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Students have needs such as:

  • Housing
  • Travel
  • Moving and storage
  • Transportation and vehicle repair
  • Technology needs related to remote learning

The ability to help students when they are in critical need will continue to exist beyond this challenging time. The Titan Student Emergency Fund will be available to provide support to students who may face financial hardship in the future.
