Alumni Back to School campaign helps Texas Southern University students in need

Like many students across the nation, Texas Southern University students are facing an array of challenges from the ongoing pandemic, including financial hardship. Employment opportunities have been disrupted, families have lost sources of income and the ability to cover basic living expenses.

The 2022 Alumni Back to School Campaign hopes to provide relief to students in need.

“Our TSU alumni family always steps up to support TSU students who are determined to continue their education,” said Connie L. Cochran, Assistant Vice President of Alumni Relations. “I am thrilled to see our esteemed alumni once again showing their Tiger Pride by investing in our students who are where they once were.”

Alumni across the nation are stepping forward to donate to the campaign, which will go toward helping with tuition and books for students.

“We must continue to do everything we can to assist our students in their quest for a TSU degree,” said Melinda Spaulding, Vice President of Communications & Advancement. “Moving into a post-pandemic reality, many of our families have been met with the new challenge of inflation that has created new obstacles. One thing is constant—eager students are returning to school and need help from alumni.”

“As alumni, so many of us owe our success, in large part, to TSU,” said Corrie Williams, TSU National Alumni Association President. “We know when we give back to ensure our students have what they need to continue their education we are impacting the lives of the scholars who will soon join us as alumni.”  

Alumni, and anyone who would like to join in supporting TSU students, are invited to give to the Back to School campaign. Join other alumni who are leaving a lasting legacy by investing in TSU students. Give your best gift and encourage others who can give by visiting
