Lifting Up Lions
What is the Lifting Up Lions initiative?
We believe that no Albrightian’s social, academic, physical, or mental well-being should be limited by challenges related to financial or material resources. In light of this, the Student and Campus Life Division is hard at work to remove barriers to student success and health.
We encourage Albrightians to take advantage of these resources and opportunities, no questions asked. Students should never feel as though these resources are only for those who are severely in need or that they may be judged for requesting assistance. If you need anything, we want to help you.
If you would like to contribute donations of clothing or toiletries to this initiative, or if you would like to speak with me about any of the information presented here, please reach out!
