Throughout the course of the Campaign, many passionate alumni stepped forward to help Juniata continue building a supportive and inclusive community.
The Dr. Maurice C. Taylor ’72 Lectureship on Social Justice was established in 2017 to assist students, faculty, and staff in developing personal and collective strategies to improve social justice in their own communities.
Genesis M. Diaz ’20, Nicholas J. Guillermo ’20, and April N. Wells ’20 set up the Alumni of Color Initiative Fund to ensure equal opportunities for students of color. More than $21,000 was raised during the Campaign to carry out this vision, to assist students in their academic and social transitions, and to cultivate a greater understanding of multiculturalism within the campus community.
The Nancy E. ’64 and Paul D. Becker Endowment Fund provides financial resources for the Plexus program, a program focused on multiculturalism as it pertains to myriad identities that encompass ability, age, gender identity, sex and sexual identity, nationality, race, religion, socioeconomic class, and more.
The Javaid Zeerak ’06 Memorial Endowment was created by a group of alumni and friends to honor Javaid’s legacy. Over $32,000 has been given to support efforts promoting intercultural learning and interfaith understanding, and to encourage diverse perspectives on campus.
Raymond E. Day ’66 gave a gift to create the Raymond E. Day ’66 Endowed Scholarship which is awarded annually to students who come from historically underrepresented groups.
