Giving Societies

Thomas Edison State University has been providing distinctive undergraduate and graduate education for self-directed adults for 50 years. But the University would not be where it is today without the support of many loyal donors whose generosity has impacted the lives of students. Giving back and paying it forward is a hallmark of TESU alumni and friends of the University. In our 50th Anniversary year, we have launched Giving Societies to express our deep appreciation for all of those who help us further the mission of Thomas Edison. Together, we are changing lives.
