Tennessee Tech launched a new campaign Thursday that seeks to make a difference in the lives of students.
The ‘I Heart Tech Students’ Campaign provides an invitation for students and faculty to donate towards three campus initiatives.
Kevin Braswell is the university’s Vice President of Advancement.
“If we don’t believe in ourselves as a campus, it’s difficult to inspire others to believe in the university,” Braswell said. “The ‘I Heart Tech Students’ Campaign is a tangible way that we as faculty and staff can step forward and do something that’s directly impacting our students.”
The campaign encourages donations to the campus food pantry, student veterans center and the new Eagle Assistance Grant. Braswell said all three programs have the potential of helping students during emergency situations.
“The Eagle Assistance Grant, a fairly new initiative, is a safety net for students in emergency situations,” Braswell said. “Sometimes a small grant can mean the difference between staying in school or leaving with incompletes.
The veterans center helps students navigate through the complexities of the GI Bill or make the transition to civilian life. The food pantry provides meals to students in need.
Braswell said faculty and students can get involved with the campaign by visiting giving.tntech.edu.
