Donations support students, faculty
In the first-ever friendly faceoff between Master of Health Administration (MHA) graduating classes, the Class of ’99 took home top honors.
The MHA class challenge kicked off on Oct. 20 at the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Cleverley Fellowship, which supports a standout student in the Division of Health Services Management and Policy each year. The challenge was the official start of a new campaign aimed at raising $2 million to support the MHA program and its students and faculty.
Each MHA class from 1971 through 2022 had 10 weeks to donate any amount, with the top honors going to the class that had the highest percentage of participants. Throughout the challenge, 37 classes participated, representing 105 donors and $74,556 was raised to support CPH students, programs and faculty.
The challenge focused on six foundational MHA funds:
- Health Equity Fund for Health Services Management and Policy
- HSMP Case Competition
- Graduate Program in Hospital and Health Services Administration Excellence Endowment Fund
- William O Cleverley Fellowship Fund
- The Stephen F. Loebs Professorship in Health Services Management and Policy
- HSMP Alumni Society Enhancement Fund
“The remarkable generosity of our MHA alumni never ceases to amaze us,” said Taylor King Boyles, senior director of development. “This challenge was a fun way to kick off this critical campaign focused on making a nationally recognized and admired program even stronger.”
