Given the unprecedented situation concerning global health, and recognizing the related challenges we’re all facing right now, JMU has postponed Giving Day.
And while “social distancing” is probably the last thing any of us would associate with the JMU community, we are also ready and willing to come together even when we shouldn’t get together in person. So despite doing what we must to slow the spread of COVID-19, remember that we can grow closer to one another than ever before.
In this time of great uncertainty, one thing is for sure: Dukes look out for Dukes. Ever since President Alger announced on March 11 that our spring semester will look drastically different at JMU, alumni, parents and friends from around the world have been asking how best to help students in need of assistance.
So if you had intended to make a gift on March 24, please contribute to one of the important programs which will provide critical support to students during the next few months.
Take good care of yourself, your family and your friends. You can monitor campus developments on JMU’s COVID-19 site. And let’s all keep up our Madison spirit as we address the coming challenges with caring and compassion.
