The University of South Florida is in the middle of its “Unstoppable” fund-raising campaign, with a goal of bringing in 600 million dollars. This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV brings you highlights from the recent formal launch of the public phase of the campaign.
Almost three hundred and twenty million dollars and counting; that’s the progress of USF’s capital campaign, “Unstoppable.” This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM drops in on the formal launch of the public phase of “Unstoppable” and talks to USF officials as well as some of the students who stand to benefit from the effort.
Joel Momberg, CEO of the USF Foundation, talks about the ‘attitude’ of USF and who should contribute to the “Unstoppable” campaign.
In response to some criticism of the campaign’s targets, USF President Dr. Judy Genshaft says “Unstoppable” is also about matching donor’s concerns with what the University needs.
USF Mass Communications Senior Candace Braun talks about her own “Unstoppable” moment: she’s ‘paying it forward’ by making sure her mother gets a college education as well.
