STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND: Critical help for our students during these uncertain times
As the university continues to monitor the ongoing situation and adjust its operations, our top priority remains the health and safety of MSU Denver students, faculty and staff. As of March 16, 2020 all in-person on-campus instruction has been suspended for our students. Courses will continue online, but new and added pressures will be assumed by our student population.
These are trying times for all of us, but for many of our students, campus is a lifeline —
Laptops. Internet. Food. Supplies. Housing. The list goes on.
These are basic necessities that our students require, and in these uncertain times we are looking to our Roadrunner Family to help meet these needs. Without support, many will struggle to keep up with their classes.
There has never been a more critical time for your generosity. We encourage you to support our students by making a gift to the funds that support students in most need: Student Emergency Fund and the Roadrunner Food Pantry.
The Student Emergency Fund can cover expenses such as emergency housing assistance, urgent rent or utility assistance, costs related to major accidents or loss due to fire, theft, or natural disaster, and much more. It allows students to remain focused on their educational goals instead of the financial toll of an emergency.
The recently passed CARES Act allocated $7.2 million in aid to MSU Denver students, but it excluded an already-vulnerable population: DACA recipients and undocumented students. In response, we have established the Dreamer Emergency Fund specifically to support students excluded from CARES Act aid in continuing with their education.
