ODU Exceeds Monetary, Participation Goals in Campus Community Campaign
Old Dominion surpassed both the monetary goal and participation goal in the 2011 Campus Community Campaign (CCC). "The gifts are in and the results are good - thanks to all of you we beat our dollar goal by $224 and our donor goal by two donors," Dominion Fund director Dawn Richardson announced in a June 13 email to this year's CCC volunteer representatives.
In just over two months' time, 927 faculty and staff members contributed $203,224 to the Campus Community Campaign. The number of donors translates to a 42.8 percent overall participation rate. Employees who contributed $100 or more were automatically entered in a drawing to win a paid reserved parking space for one year. This year's winner is Mary Hayward of the biological sciences department.
The offices of Facilities Management and University Advancement each won an ice cream social as the units with the overall highest participation. Also winning an ice cream social was the Department of Human Resources for being the first unit to reach the 100 percent participation plateau.
The theme of the campaign was "One University. One Team!" Ali Ardalan, associate dean of the College of Business and Public Administration, and Patricia King, landscape architect, served as co-chairs.
The Campus Community Campaign is an initiative of the Dominion Fund, a program that provides ODU with annual support in order to bridge the gap between traditional funding sources (tuition and state allocations) and operating expenses, so as to promote the university's strategic plan.
