Faculty Co-Chair Barbara Musolf, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Biology
“I vividly remember my interview with the biology faculty at Clayton State for a tenure track position. In response to my question about what she valued most at Clayton State, Michelle Furlong stated that she really loved the students here and the comradery in the department. I quickly found myself sharing those same feelings for both students and my colleagues here at CSU. I give much of my time to students and the university but sometimes money is what is needed. While I contribute to all my alma maters in addition to Clayton State, I give more to Clayton State because it clearly supports best what I value—support for our students and for services and supplies that the university provides to enhance our students’ education. Every year I increase my pledge and I encourage you to find a little extra funds to either increase your pledge or to start participating in the Faculty Staff Fund Drive. Our 85% participation rate is rare for an organization. Let’s continue to nourish and grow the number of individuals that make up this rare species of educational institutions.”

It is important to participate in the faculty and staff fund drive because it takes each of us to make a difference for all of us. WE ALL benefit from the contributions giving to the fund drive. When we award even just one student with a scholarship; when even just one faculty or staff member gets to attend a professional development conference; when a departmental sponsored activity touches even just one community member, WE ALL feel the impact. In the words of Edward Everett Hale, "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." When I do what I can and when YOU do what you can, the power of ONE becomes unstoppable and dreams become reachable; and WE here at Clayton State University are all about making dreams real!
