Dear Alumni, Students, Friends and Colleagues,

Our vision for the future of Thomas Edison State University is as bold as the students we serve. Your support in 2018 built a strong foundation for future growth and innovation across the University, and your dedication will continue to inspire our students as they work toward their educational goals.

As I begin my second year as president, I am inspired by our progress and excited for the future. I am encouraged by the enthusiasm and dedication of our students, the achievements we continue to make in advancing nontraditional education and the strong bonds that exist between our alumni and friends of the University.

Your generosity and support greatly impacts the students we serve in meaningful ways. For this, we thank you. Within this report are highlights from the Foundation’s fundraising activities and stories of success that would not have been possible without your commitment to TESU.

As we strive to create a premier experience for all students, we are working to implement an enhanced student services platform, upgrade our delivery methods and develop programs that align with the needs of employers as well as the communities where we live. We also have ambitious goals to offer more scholarships to deserving students. Your continued support makes the journey possible for so many.

On behalf of the Thomas Edison State University Foundation and the University, thank you again for your partnership and generosity. I hope you take pride in knowing that your support is boldly changing the lives of others.
