It's Spirit Week at UND! You may see these signs around the building, noting the 40+ named spaces here. Almost all gifts that generated named spaces went toward student scholarships, with a few others going toward programs (e.g., MLS) and educators (e.g., professorships, endowed chairs).
Students, be sure to sign our donor thank you poster on the second floor on Thursday (10 a.m.-noon)!

“I hope you will consider joining my wife Susan and me in supporting the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences Giving Hearts Scholarship on Giving Hearts Day on Feb. 8. Your gift will help a young student focus on becoming a great health care provider, rather than worrying about loans and debt.”
--Joshua Wynne, UND VP of Health Affairs and SMHS Dean
Any gift amount is welcome! But for each $1,000 gift, donors receive one chance to have one of the scholarships named in your honor. Please remember to give your gift via givingheartsday.org on Feb. 8!
