Des Moines University’s faculty and staff commit themselves every day, making the University the best it can be for students, departments, academic programs and the DMU community at large. On top of their daily efforts, they go a step further by financially supporting the University initiatives that are most important to them through the annual Employee Campaign.
DMU has one of the best faculty and staff giving participation rates in the country. Year-after-year they continue to outpace the national average of 33 percent employee participation. The 2016 Employee Campaign was no exception. This year DMU employees gathered in the spirit of philanthropy and broke their prior participation records with an outstanding 76 percent participation rate, which raised over $131,876 for DMU initiatives.
Our faculty and staff are in a unique position to watch financial support make a daily impact on the University and its students. With the investment of their time, talent and financial contributions, they express their beliefs in DMU’s mission, its students and themselves. As you can see, their investments show DMU’s strength and continued success.
