Alumni & Friends

Feb. 24, 2017

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Winthrop is launching an exciting new initiative that will give our supporters a more prominent role advocating on its behalf. The Winthrop Network will give you the chance to be better informed about the important issues being addressed at the State Capitol, and bring our many voices together to build support for legislation of importance to the future of Winthrop. We will ask you to act no more than two or three times during the legislative session. Doing so will take just a few minutes, but will have a tremendous impact.

Now, more than ever, Winthrop needs your help. While the state portion of our budget has been declining, the needs of Winthrop and its students have continued to increase. Winthrop's great advantage in receiving the attention it deserves is you, our loyal alumni and friends, who live in every state House and Senate District in South Carolina.

The Winthrop Network will connect our alumni and friends across the state to influence legislation affecting Winthrop among members of the South Carolina General Assembly. Please join this effort.

As we move through the legislative session, we will email you and ask you to make contact with your Representative and Senator on legislation that is important to Winthrop. Our collective voice in support of the university is the key to advancing our legislative goals, and we greatly appreciate your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Jeffrey Perez, vice president for University Relations, at
