Spotlight on Student-led Giving

Microphilanthropy in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences

Microphilanthropy is a model of giving that engages recipients and donors at a very personal level. The College of Nursing and Health Sciences promotes this practice among student groups as a model of leadership that develops students' sense of social responsibility while increasing opportunities for international and multicultural experiential learning and research for their benefactors.

CNHS Radiation Therapy Cancer Screenings

Students in the Organization of Medical Radiation Sciences are hosting a night for students and staff to learn about the impact of drinking and smoking on the body and the increased risk of cancer development. A radiation oncologist from Fletcher Allen Health Care will discuss those cancers related to alcohol consumption and smoking, specifically, head-and-neck and lung cancers. Through microphilanthropy efforts, the students hope to raise $500 to help support educating the UVM community about the risks of drinking and smoking and what they can do now to prevent being diagnosed with cancer later in life. Students will post flyers on campus about the education night to encourage students to attend.
