50th Anniversary Gala and Dean’s Roundtable canceled
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and additional struggles facing students during this time, the college’s 50th Anniversary Gala and Dean’s Roundtable event is canceled.
After many lengthy discussions and careful consideration, college leadership felt the funds for the gala would be better served to help our students during the pandemic. In the Aggie spirit of selfless service, the cancelation of the event will allow more sponsorship funds to go directly to undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships and student support.
“Many of our students are struggling in ways they never imagined. They or their parents have lost jobs. Perhaps they find themselves taking care of siblings, homeschooling them, while also maintaining their own coursework,” said Dean Joyce Alexander. “As our students prepare to return in August, they will continue to face uncertainty. Some find that even paying for necessities such as food and essentials will be a challenge.”
If you are interested in supporting our students during this challenging time, please make a gift to the Dean’s Student Assistance Fund at the Texas A&M Foundation.
As part of the 50th anniversary event, the college was also set to honor 36 individuals for their dedicated leadership and service to our communities. The college is working on additional ways to honor this year’s Dean’s Roundtable honorees, including a video on social media.
“We hope this act, while small, can honor at least a portion of the immense impact of each individual recognized this year,” said Alexander. “It is our greatest hope that we may be able to gather together next year to honor the next cohort of Transformational Leaders at the 2021 Dean’s Roundtable.”
