Professor Emeritus Jim Togeas, Honorary co-chair of A Model for Living and Learning

"The story of its alumni [is what makes UMM a model for living and learning]: their success is a manifestation of their vision, energy, and brains, and it's been a privilege to be a part of their story."




Jeff and Kristin LambertyJeffery '99 and Kristin Lamberty '00

"We give because we want students to have the opportunities we had."



Kait mcbradyKaitlyn McBrady '13 

"I owe a lot to UMM: my education, my first job, my best friends, my spouse, and now my career. Giving to UMM is second nature to me; it's a way to value higher education, celebrate my time here, give back, and plan for the future. I am honored to create a scholarship that highlights my experience here and will impact students directly. It was an exciting opportunity to be recognized as a Presidents Club member while supporting a cause I care about during this campaign. I can't think of a better way to pay it forward for the advantages I had here and for the students that will have some of the same. "
