RCPD Giving Tree



Dear Friends and Donors,

I extend a hearty Spartan greeting and appreciation for the part you play in our forward momentum of ability and opportunity. Your partnership is contributing to our collective leadership in world-class efforts to fully engage students in the promise of an MSU education; effectively allowing over 2,100 students to prevail over a range of disability challenges.

MSU's heritage of leadership in accessibility extends from the 1934 Tower Guard Honor Organization's efforts reading for blind students, to the post-polio inclusion of people with mobility challenges, welcoming deaf students to the classroom, and now fully connecting a new generation of people with various hidden disabilities from learning disabilities to chronic health, mental health, and autism spectrum disorders. Spartan leadership is thriving through signature programs and services, ambitious students, determined staff, support from MSU management, and a growing network of alumni and friends who extend our reach and quality.

The RCPD is engaging the Empowering Extraordinary campaign with fantastic features. Similarly, Jordyn Castor's story called "Wall Street Ready" received acclaim as empowering and firmly centered on the extraordinary potential of each of our students no matter the challenges they face. The Alex Powell Great State Race ran the winning MSU game ball from East Lansing to Ann Arbor garnering national press while also serving as a vital fundraiser. We welcome new programming including the Careers Collaborative sponsored by alumni Mike and Kathy Bosco, a new coaching program aiding student growth courtesy of the Tompkins family, and innovative work using technology to aid campus navigation supported by Greg Fowler.

We’ve highlighted ongoing efforts of the past year in the following pages and seek your continued partnership.

Thank you,

Michael Hudson, Director
