The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is a group comprised of undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) who play an integral role in outreach efforts for the CAES Office of Development and Alumni Relations. The goal of this group is to help build a culture of philanthropy within CAES's student body in order to ensure that our students become engaged and loyal alumni donors.
