Private funding from alumni is essential to enhancing the College of Law's ability to fulfill its Vincentian mission of providing access to educational opportunities for individuals that will allow them to participate in work that promotes the social, economic, cultural and ethical quality of life in the Chicago metropolitan area and beyond.
Law Reunion gives you the chance to support today's College of Law students. Your gifts to the College of Law will help give them some of the same opportunities you enjoyed and enable them to follow in your footsteps as socially responsible community leaders, engaged alumni and supporters of the Vincentian mission. With your support, the College of Law will be better equipped to support student scholarships, attract and retain outstanding faculty, enhance technology and the law library, and develop cutting-edge curriculum. Each and every gift strengthens the College of Law and its commitment to excellence in legal education.
The College of Law thrives not only on the amount of donations made, but on the number of alumni who give. Educational institutions use the "alumni participation rate" to measure alumni giving and that rate is one of the factors considered by outside sources in the College of Law's overall reputation when compared to peer institutions. Thus, the more alumni who give, the higher the rate and the better the reputation of the College of Law.
We hope you will take this opportunity to reconnect with the College of Law and to help give today's students an even better chance of becoming tomorrow's leaders. In honor of your Reunion year, please plan to support the College of Law by increasing your past support or by making a first-time gift. Gifts must be received no later than September 27, 2013 in order to be included in the Reunion Honor Roll.
