Center will provide learning resources for students
CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. (Aug. 7, 2014) — Thomas More College has received its first investment toward the new success center, which will provide students with resources for experiential learning, academic advising, graduate school advising, career planning, counseling and learning aids.
The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. US Bank Foundation is investing $500,000 toward the Thomas More College Success Center, which will positively impact student success and retention.
The college announced an anonymous $4 million matching challenge at commencement on May 17, and will have four years to match the gift. It is the largest gift in the college’s history. The funds are restricted and must be used for the creation of the success center.
Overall, the gift will impact as many as 1,600 undergraduate students every year, plus recent graduates. More than 80 percent of Thomas More College’s 10,000+ alumni network reside, work and raise their families in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati region.
