To kick off the college’s fundraising efforts for the IGNITE campaign, we are pleased to announce the establishment of the Professor James P. Gleeson Scholarship Fund.
Many JACSW alumni will fondly remember Dr. Gleeson, who recently retired after 30 years as an esteemed faculty member.
Dr. Gleeson says he is honored and humbled by the creation of the scholarship fund. “My experience at Jane Addams changed my life, it changed how I look at the world, and it made me a better person,” he reflects. “I would love for more people to have that same opportunity, especially students who don’t have a lot of financial resources. I hope that the scholarship can be my legacy.”
The new scholarship fund was announced at a retirement reception for Dr. Gleeson, hosted by his long-time friend and fellow JACSW alumnus Jim Horan, MSW ’79, who made a very generous contribution to the endowment.
