The HESA graduate assistantship fund
This fund will provide critical dollars to support, expand, and enhance the graduate and research assistantships that are a critical part of the HESA experience. Support of HESA graduate assistantships will go a long way toward continuing to provide graduate students with opportunities to gain the para-professional experiences that provide the connection point between what is learned in the classroom and how it’s applied to daily work in the profession. Without a doubt, this support is vital!
The Higher Education and Student Affairs general fund
Support of this fund will allow HESA leadership the flexibility to address the most pressing needs of the program – as they develop. This type of support is critical to the overall success of the program as it ensures HESA continues to enjoy its reputation as a nationally recognized leader in the development of higher education scholar-practitioners. Your generosity is appreciated!
Robert H. Shaffer Memorial Fund
To celebrate Robert Shaffer's remarkable life, his generosity in words and deeds, and his contributions to Indiana University and higher education and student affairs, IU established the Robert H. Shaffer Memorial Fund. Gifts will first be used to plant a tree and install a bench on the Bloomington campus in his honor. Any remaining funds will support scholarships for graduate students in higher education and student affairs through the IU School of Education. Click below to make your contribution today.
