LSUA Increases Contribution to United Way

Released: 11/17/2010

Employees of LSU Alexandria this year increased their charitable giving to United Way of Central Louisiana by 6.4 percent with a total of $10,811. Participation in the fundraising campaign at LSUA increased from 50 percent last year to 59 percent in 2010.

“I’m proud that our faculty and staff responded in this manner,” said Dr. David Manuel, LSUA chancellor. “It’s very commendable that the university community supported the needs of Central Louisiana in this time of budgetary uncertainty in higher education.”

The LSUA campaign was spearheaded by Dr. Rob Wright, assistant professor of psychology, and Saurabh Singh, educational technology specialist. Manuel praised their effort as “energetic, creative and committed.”
