SIU Today - March 02, 2017


Thank you to all faculty and staff who supported the first SIU Day of Giving. Your commitment to SIU is a signal to others that we are an institution worthy of their investment. While the SIU Foundation team is still tallying the totals, it’s safe to say that we exceeded our original goal of $200,000. I’m grateful to all who were a part of this important and successful day.
