On June 30, the College’s Teach It Forward (TIF) campaign ended, having raised $707 million and engaged more than 87 percent of current alumni.
TIF, which began development in 2013, had the initial goal to engage 85 percent of alumni and fundraise $650 million towards capital building projects, financial aid, faculty support and co-curricular student experiences. The campaign developed over seven years and three College presidencies, and it launched its public phase in 2015.
Alumni engagement varied widely but was categorized into four main types: gift donation, event attendance, volunteering opportunities and online involvement. Student mentorship, particularly with career development, was a popular mode of engagement.
