In the Office of Development, the one thing we see most every day is need. It’s why we get up and come to work. We see students who—plain and simple—need financial assistance to continue down their path to a better tomorrow. Most are just barely getting by to cover their basic needs. And sadly, we know many who’ve had to leave MSU Denver, and we can only hope they’ll return when they’re able.
The brighter news is that we get to see examples of extraordinary kindness from those who know an investment in education is an investment in a human life and future. These are the people who get it. Who understand we’re all in this together, who know that the full measure of our lives is not what we’ve garnered, but rather what we’ve given.
