The Library Online Learning Fund

Now more than ever, students, faculty and the community are turning to online resources, books and databases as a staple in their academic experience. University Libraries needs your help to create access to vital resources needed in an ever changing digital world. Your gift to the Libraries Online Learning Fund will ensure that materials necessary to be successful in coursework and research are available. You will also provide access to virtual reality equipment, collections and online databases that allow students of all majors at WSU the opportunity to reach for more.

Because of you

Your gift to the Shocker Fund provides flexible resources to meet the changing needs of our students. More students will have access to programs that enhance their student experience, like tutoring, study abroad, applied learning conferences and competitions, and community service opportunities.

Last year, University Libraries received $12,915 from 724 individual gifts. So far this year, it has received $7,722. With your help, we can beat our previous year’s total so more students will receive the critical support they need. Make your gift to the Ablah Library Shocker Fund today.

On behalf of Wichita State students, thank you Shocker Nation.
