On Feb. 28, Seton Hall will join nearly 70 educational institutions worldwide to participate in the first-ever Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day. The initiative, organized by CASE Affiliated Student Advancement Programs (CASE ASAP), is designed to increase student understanding of philanthropy and grow engagement on campuses. Institutions from the United States, England, Canada, Australia and other countries will participate in the event through various activities, including "thank-a-thons," day-long social media campaigns and student video interviews on what giving means to them.
The day, coordinated by the Student Alumni Association (SAA) and supported by the Division of University Advancement, will honor all those students, alumni and friends who support the University. Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day is a celebration of loyalty to Seton Hall, and a time to learn more about our supporters' contributions!
Events at Seton Hall will include information stations, contests, educational signs around campus and various opportunities for students to say "thank you" to University supporters. Alumni will also be able to show students why they have chosen to have a life-long relationship with Seton Hall via an online contest.
Activities will take place in the University Center (lower and first levels), Walsh Library and Jubilee Hall.
"This is a day that provides an opportunity to thank those who give back to Seton Hall in so many ways," according to senior Andrew Wampler, president of the Student Alumni Association. "We are very excited to be able to have worked so closely with University Advancement and CASE ASAP to raise awareness on campus about the importance of philanthropy and engagement."
Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day is part of CASE ASAP's goal to foster and enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement—including fundraising, alumni relations, communications and marketing.
"It's important that students start taking steps to become the next group of philanthropic leaders," says Rob Henry, CASE's executive director of emerging constituencies. "On February 28, we celebrate the value students bring to their institutions with their time, talent and treasure."
"The overall goal of the day," says Wampler, "is to show our fellow students the importance of remaining informed, involved and invested with Seton Hall."
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., with offices in London, Singapore and Mexico City, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education is the professional organization for advancement professionals at all levels who work in alumni relations, communications, fundraising, marketing and other areas.
