Student Philanthropy

Students go down slide

Students groups and organizations play an extremely important role in creating a culture of annual giving and awareness on the University of Tennessee Health Science Center's campus.

From golf tournament fundraisers to annual giving education, student leaders from all six of UTHSC's colleges work with fellow students, alumni, family, and friends to stress the importance of giving back.
