Why I Give?

David DriscollDavid Driscoll is an alumnus and supporter of the Department of Economics. When asked why he chooses to give, this is what David had to say.
“IUPUI is unique in that it is not just a jointly occupied urban campus of two major research universities, but it is also a major university in and of itself. It offers an unusually affordable and accessible education at all levels of instruction to those in the Indianapolis area. As an alumnus who took full advantage of that, I have been happy to see the growth in the strength and variety of its curricular offerings in the years since I graduated, and this is a major reason why I have supported IUPUI financially over the years.”
– David Driscoll, B.A. ’79 Economics
