Celebrate 5 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years since we walked the halls of Posner Hall. In honor of this special milestone and in memory of our Tepper School experience and education, let's join together in support of the Tepper School.

This year we are challenging our class to reach 35% class gift participation. We need your help to meet our goal of 105 Class of 2017 Tepper School donors!

  • Goal: 105 Donors

Tepper Class of 2017 Campaign

By contributing to our class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper Community and Inclusion Fund

All members of the Tepper School community, including students, student organizations, faculty, and staff, can apply for Community and Inclusion Funds to create an event, program, or initiative that supports the school’s diversity and inclusion goals.

The school’s diverse and inclusive community enriches the student experience and leads to greater creativity and innovation in decision making. Ensuring that all members of our community have a voice and sense of belonging will empower them to strive for excellence.

Help our Tepper Class of 2017 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
