A Call to Action!
Thereís a class action brewing at the law school. The Class Action Campaign of 2008 is an initiative to increase the participation, awareness and knowledge about the importance of private financial support for the law school. Leading the charge in this ground breaking campaign are the Student Ambassadors from each class. This year the campaign is being expanded to include all students, not just the graduating class. Everyone is being asked to contribute $10 to the Class Action effort.
Why this big push to have students contribute? And what difference will this amount of money make to the overall budget of the school? Good questions! Weíre glad youíre paying attention!
Simply put, the primary focus of the campaign is to foster a culture of giving back. Thus, while the amount being requested is relatively small, $10, it makes a strong statement to our alumni and others and it will have an impact far greater than you may appreciate.
To show their commitment to the campaign, Dean Gary R. Roberts and several former deans of the law school are willing to provide up to $10,000.00 in matching funds to help encourage participation by the student body. So, hereís your opportunity to make the Dean(s) pay!
How can you give?
Students are asked to make gifts from now until April 21st. Gifts can be made by:
- dropping off your check or pledge card in room 227 (the Deanís Suite)
- dropping off your donation at one of the student-run campaign tables (available in the atrium at various times throughout the month of April)
- dropping your contribution in the donation box in the Student Affairs Office
- visiting the IU Foundationís online giving site. Select 'Law School Indianapolis' (which appears 6th on the list) and add the item to your shopping cart. Once added to the cart, youíll be able to specify the amount you wish to contribute.
