College of Humanities and Social Sciences Celebration of Service

The Last Mile Fund

Join us in celebrating the tremendous contributions of Professors Haruko Cook, Octavio Delasuaree, Marie-Louise Friquegnon, Bob Rosen, Stephen Shalom and Maria Villar. They've inspired, informed and educated William Paterson University students for 227 years!

All gifts made in their honor will be directed to COHSS's Last Mile Fund which assists seniors who are experiencing an unexpected financial hardship which may jeopardize their ability to graduate. Established in 2020 by Dean Wartyna Davis, the Fund awards grants to full-time or part-time COHSS students who are in good academic standing.
