Jane E. Decker Endowed Libraries Student Support Fund

This new fund was established to support Library student employees – recipients may include those involved in research. 

“Jane believed in access to education for everyone, and was especially drawn to returning and first generation students. She was committed to the notion that education can transform peoples’ lives, in part by expanding their horizons. For example, she promoted global awareness by offering short study abroad experiences that could accommodate the schedules of returning students who worked full time.” 

More information coming soon.
