Initiative C, Objective 3: Expand and Deepen the Development of the Whole Person
This year's student highlights include research, publications, presentations at national associations and conferences, panel discussions and community outreach.
Campus Life and Student Success is offering a wide variety of resources to students to help them in better helping themselves when they encounter or face a personal crisis. Training, programs and workshops help inform the community of the support services available to all students.
Global impact? The term literally signifies things coming together with the planet or around the planet. While events of global impact might simply occur, it means something more when we intend to have global impact. The implication is making a difference for the better.
Thinking of global impact as an outcome of values, in practice, leads us forward. Our work at Stetson is a special opportunity to foster the practice of global impact, both in the classroom and, more importantly, beyond.

Teaching About Giving
Green, White & YOU, Stetson's new student philanthropy organization, debuted with several events in fall 2016, gaining rapid momentum through word-of-mouth and building a robust student membership. Its mission is to educate, engage and develop current students' awareness, understanding and participation in philanthropy. In November 2016, for example, approximately 400 students wrote thank-you notes to Stetson donors.
