University of La Verne Scholarship Gala

  

President’s Update | April 24, 2022:

Here at the University of La Verne, we are basking in the glow of our most spectacular Scholarship Gala to date. On Saturday night, we welcomed 600 guests to our La Verne campus for our first in-person event in two years, and our first-ever gala on campus. It was so wonderful to see so many of our friends in person again!

I am thrilled to share with you that the gala raised a record-setting $1.1 million in support of student scholarships and programs—making this the most successful fundraising event in the history of our university. Not only that, but an additional scholarship gift of $720,000 from Adventist Health White Memorial Hospital, led by Trustee John Raffoul, was announced the day before the gala. This gift specifically supports the nursing program at our new College of Health and Community Well-Being. I am so gratified to see so much support going towards the success of our students in programs across our university.

Enormous thanks are due to everyone who contributed toward our gala, or who has given to the university through other channels. Knowing that there is such strong support out there for our university is deeply encouraging and only strengthens our commitment to providing a relevant, equitable, quality education to all qualified students. Our future looks bright indeed, and I look forward to working with you to support our students for many years to come.

With warmest appreciation,

Devorah Lieberman, PhD
President
