The Alicia Griffith Fund provides support for individual students who encounter unexpected expenses, emergency situations or financial distress.
The Fund was established by family and friends of Alicia Griffith '87 to honor Alicia, a political science major and inspirational member of the Class of 1987. As President of Lesher Hall, she wrote to her classmates, "nobody knows what the future holds, but by giving of yourself, you can make a difference. To give the gift of love, that which comes from within, that we can do."
Requests for assistance may be made to members of Campus Ministries, Dean of Students or Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and members of the faculty. Requests are considered and distributed with input from Unity House and Dean of Students staff and faculty.
Any of these campus community members can serve as a contact for students who might benefit from support of the Alicia Griffith Fund:
Matthew Damschroder Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students
Erin Paschal Assistant Dean of Students - Campus Life
