Support University of Redlands
While our lives look quite different right now, giving back hasn't been cancelled! On #GivingTuesdayNow, you can show your Redlands pride and express your generosity right from home! Show #URtogether and make a gift to Redlands to ensure we continue to provide for our students, faculty, and entire University community.
Springtime at the University of Redlands is often a time of meaningful conclusion and joyous celebration, but due to the unforeseen circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is a very different environment this year. While there is no way yet to calculate the full impact of COVID-19 on the Redlands community, the University has implemented strategies to help manage this crisis while maintaining academic continuity and above all, support for our students.
During this uncertain time, alumni and friends have asked how they can help our community, once again embodying the “Bulldog for Life” theme. We are asking you to support our students with a gift to the Redlands Fund to help alleviate some of these unexpected expenses, including:
Working to safely bring home 88 abroad students from countries throughout the globe, including 18 from our international campus in Salzburg
Moving 1,600 students out of residence halls and ensuring their safe return home
Underwriting airfare, transportation, and storage costs for our neediest students
Caring for the small number of students who must remain on the Redlands campus
Transitioning 5,000 students from all Schools to technology-enabled learning, including new equipment and infrastructure updates
Continuing to respond to unforeseen needs that may arise, such as the University’s decision to provide residential students with a prorated room-and-board credit
Our team made the decision to postpone our planned Giving Day (originally planned for April 2) until sometime later this calendar year so that we can focus on these immediate needs of our campus community. We are following the Centers for Disease Control recommendations for social distancing in this crisis to keep our community safe.
But that doesn't mean we can't come together as Bulldogs online...we are together and #URtogether.
