Together, we will make their journey, our legacy!

Employee Campaign LogoThe employee campaign is a symbolic event that brings together our UIW family; including faculty, staff and administration, to chart the course for a brighter future for our students and our university community as a whole. It is never about the size of the gift but the power of the combined efforts of faculty, staff and administration together. Please consider designating a gift to a fund you feel passionate about.

"I am honored to participate in the UIW Employee Campaign. Throughout my education and career, I have had the opportunity to work with different employee campaigns. Now, with the University of Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine, it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to help our learners and our departments by giving back. I participate as I remember the opportunities that were and still are available to me through the generosity of others."

"I am so grateful to be part of the UIW family. The work we do here is extremely fulfilling and life-giving. Because of that, giving back through programs like the employee campaign is not some obligation to fulfill. It’s a reminder that our work is missional. We are the fortunate ones who have been invited to be part of this great mission. Our gesture of support is an invitation to reflect on who we are, how we got here, and who we are serving. No matter the size of the financial gift, I encourage you to not just pull out a credit card and click send. I urge you to truly pause and reflect on why you came to UIW and what keeps you here. Like the gospel miracle of five loaves of bread and a few small fish, I like to think that our gifts to the employee campaign when given with a joyful heart will multiply as they feed a multitude."

"Over the past few years, the UIW community has supported one other while at the same time continued to serve the needs of others. It is for reasons like this that I contribute each year to the UIW Employee Campaign. Participation in the campaign is an opportunity for employees to show their commitment to UIW, its students, and its mission, and I can think of no better way to show my support to UIW than through this year’s UIW Employee Campaign.”

"Throughout my years as part of the UIW community, I have come to learn of the many ways our students and employees have been supported by the university’s programs, initiatives, and resources. This is a true testimony to our mission, as we seek to identify and address our community needs. In ways large and small, our collective efforts yield great benefits. We prepare our students to live the mission in their professional practice. While they are with us, we have an opportunity to model the responsibility and care for those we serve. The Employee Campaign is just one chance to demonstrate this commitment. Every donation counts toward our collective contribution to our community, and donors can designate their pledge to a particular fund or program. I encourage others to join in by donating to the UIW Employee Campaign."

“As a former undergraduate student at UIW, and as an employee here at UIW for almost 15 years, I feel very grateful for the many opportunities this institution has provided me. Giving to the Employee Campaign is a great way to show my appreciation and it’s just one way for me to give back to this amazing community. I would also like to add that it is super important to follow our overall 'participation rate' as many of our external donors look at the number to see the buy-in from our internal employees. So I also approach this with a 'team player' attitude to ensure we are maximizing our support for the UIW community. Those two main points are the main reasons why I give each year to the Employee Campaign.”

"The reason why I give to the UIW Employee Campaign is because as an alumna and employee of this institution, I remember what it was like being a student and the impact that scholarships have on promoting student success. Now as an employee, I make it a point to pay it forward to help other students succeed in their academic journeys. Student success in completing a degree is impactful for students, their families, and encourages generational success as a whole. I encourage others to donate to the Employee Campaign as a show of meaningful support for our students as they work toward achieving their dreams!"
