Your Story is Our Story: The Annual Fund Six-Week Parent Campaign
We're at 73% parent participation with a week left!
Did you know that more than 25% of the cost of each student's University Liggett School experience is paid for with tax-deductible gifts from parents, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees and friends of the school?
These gifts bridge the gap between the tuition you pay and the costs associated with the individualized attention, exceptional classroom resources, dedicated faculty and challenging academic programs our students benefit from.
Please consider making your Annual Fund gift today, as we work toward 100% parent participation by the end of our campaign on October 22! We thank you for your dedication to the University Liggett School community and the world-class education we provide our learners.

Held in Memphis, Tenn., July 8 to 14, and using the city as its focal point, the seminar explored the historical origins of Black Power, its political, economic and cultural components and influence on social movements from the 1960s to the present. It was sponsored by Rhodes College and the National Civil Rights Museum and led by historian Charles McKinney.
