Dear UWM Colleague,
success over the past year continues to be directly related to your
support of our mission and goals. While we continue to advance our
priority goals of research and access, we also continue to support
our external campaign of embracing community through campus giving.
Our State and University Employees Combined Giving Campaign (SECC)
continues to build capacity for our partnerships and linkages with
the external community. The 2011 campaign, like so many other years,
was successful in raising approximately $120,000. Through the generosity
of you, our retired Faculty, special campus events, and general
donations, we were able to top our goal in last year's campaign.
We are ready to challenge ourselves again, and to provide the same, if not higher, amount to our greater Milwaukee area community non-profits, many of whom engaged in important research and volunteer efforts with our University. One way of delivering this message is through the support of the 2012 UWM Gives to Community campaign which runs from October 8, 2012 to November 30, 2012.

most need our help. Let's continue to be the institution that scores
for the community as "We Move Together!"
