Johnson State College has established the Barbara E. Murphy Fellowship in honor of President Murphy’s 14 years at JSC.
The fellowship will support visiting scholars, artists and “adventurers-in-residence,” as Murphy refers to innovators who are passionate about their work and excel in their field or are making a difference in the world. Barbara’s dream is to expose students in every major to a visiting fellow who expands their worldview and inspires them to envision new possibilities.
Gifts in Murphy’s honor also may be directed to the President’s Fund for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, which Murphy established shortly after her arrival at JSC. The President’s Fund supports unique academic opportunities for students and faculty, including attendance at professional conferences and cultural immersion in foreign lands, and to date has awarded more than $300,000 to JSC students, faculty and staff.
Gifts to either or both initiatives may be made using the enclosed envelope or by contributing online at www.jsc.edu/GiveToJSC.
