2017 United Way – College of Liberal Arts and Sciences


United Way of Story County’s (UWSC) mission is to improve lives. Every dollar donated to United Way makes an impact in the lives of our neighbors, students and colleagues. Help make a positive difference in our community, and contribute to United Way of Story County!

This year, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is offering a few new ways to get involved with the campaign. We hope you’ll join us at our fundraisers, and consider how you and your department can contribute to UWSC.
