Ways to Engage


Dare to Rise

President Jayne Marie (Jamie) Comstock’s passion for higher education has long been found in the intersection of quality and access. In her 30-year career, she has steadfastly advocated that all students - regardless of demographic category or life experience - deserve the kind of education that an exceptional public institution like Winthrop offers.

The Dare to Rise fund will promote President Comstock’s vision of Winthrop as uniquely positioned to offer quality and access in a singular institution. The fund will galvanize a spectrum of initiatives designed to ensure the highest caliber instruction and academic support for students. The fund also will allow Winthrop to redefine quality higher education as “inclusive” rather than “exclusive” by supporting access through creation of need-based scholarships. These scholarships will be a source of real help that will make going to college and completing a degree a reality for all deserving students who want to transform their opportunities through education.

Thank you for considering a gift to the Dare to Rise fund. Your gift, commensurate with the value you place on access to higher education, will be celebrated as the initial fund contributions are announced at President Comstock’s Investiture.

Onward. Upward. Winthrop Ever Stand.
