Faculty and Staff


Western Carolina University’s employees commit themselves each and every day to making Western the best it can be for the students, departments, academic programs and the WCU community.

You are integral to the success of Western Carolina. As a community, we can guarantee the continuation of that success today and tomorrow. Through your support, you can further demonstrate your belief in our mission and your commitment to WCU.

From commitments through payroll deduction to one-time gifts, from bequests to everything in between, your participation counts! Please consider a gift at any level to help us reach our goal of 25% Faculty and Staff Giving participation by June 30, 2017.

To give via check, credit card, or payroll deduction, please complete the Faculty Staff Campaign Gift Form and return to Claire Burns, director of annual giving, 201 H.F. Robinson Building. To give online via credit card, click here.

I Love WCU

During the month of February, we are gathering together to let everyone know how much we love Western Carolina University. You can show your WCU love by sharing a photo or video of why you love WCU with #ilovewcu, make a gift and attend our Faculty and Staff I Love WCU event.

Join us for a fun event where you can fill out a WCU heart with why you love Western Carolina and receive complimentary Starbucks and assorted desserts. We hope to see you there!
