The Faculty & Staff Campaign for the University of South Florida is a fundraising effort that allows you, the employees of USF, to make a gift to the area of your choice at the University. These gifts stay at USF, and make a lasting impact in each area that you choose to support.

"I feel like I need to be a student advocate and an advocate for education. Giving to USF is a way to demonstrate support for students, faculty, staff and alumni."

"I feel like I need to be a student advocate and an advocate for education..." Barbara Redding, Assistant Dean of USF's College of Nursing, gives back financially to USF as a result of the gratitude she feels for the opportunities that she had. "The State of Florida provided for my doctoral program through tuition reimbursement...I still am very grateful for my education. Wwithout that it would have been a struggle...and so I just think it's important to continue with that giving."

Barbara feels that it is important to give back to support education; specifically in her profession, she sees the impact that education has on the community at large. "In my particular area, we are very short of nursing faculty and unless we really support those individuals, we are not going to have the faculty to teach our students, and we certainly need nurses as healthcare providers; it is an essential piece of our existence at this point in life."

For Barbara giving back is a way to demonstrate support for students, faculty, staff and alumni. "I would encourage everybody to contribute...it is a great opportunity and it really makes you feel wonderful whenever you do it."
