Faculty and staff donate back to the University

Each year, faculty and staff at UTC show their commitment to the University by giving back a part of their salary to the Faculty and Staff Campaign, and this year’s donations have already surpassed last year’s total of over $72,500.

"With the capable assistance of 23 Building Captains, pledges and gifts are up from this time last year, and we are hopeful for one of our best years ever," according to Richard Brown, Vice Chancellor of Finance and Operations.

The donations can be unrestricted gifts, or allocated for any department or to support any scholarship that the faculty or staff member chooses.

"All gifts, no matter the size, are important," Brown added.

Brown says there are departments and offices on campus who have reported 100% participation, and more of those contributing are using the payroll deduction plan.

"It's a great time to be part of Chattanooga's University, and faculty and staff participation in helping UTC move ahead is greatly appreciated," Brown said.
