GSIA Class of 1978 Campaign

By contributing to your class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper School Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports areas of greatest need at the school, including: 

  • Student financial aid: 508 graduate students received financial assistance during the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Student engagement experiences, such as club activities, Basecamp, Diversity and Welcome Weekends, and the Accelerate Leadership Center, allowing students to build peer, corporate, and alumni networks to support their future careers.
  • Alumni engagement opportunities, like lifelong learning webinars.

Help your GSIA Class of 1978 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
