Pep and Vim/Reunion Weekend

* FREE Swag for Volunteers - Purple Flags

2023 Reunion T-shirt

On Saturday, April 8, the Alumni and Engagement team will be placing purple flags around campus for Pep and Vim, the UE annual day of giving. One way we express gratitude for UE donors is by planting one flag for every person who has made a gift to the university over the past year. This allows everyone on campus to see the generosity of the UE family and to know there’s an amazingly philanthropic community that continues to empower all Aces.

We need your help planting flags on April 8! We will begin at 10:00 a.m. and we should be finished by noon. Each volunteer will receive a FREE Reunion Weekend t-shirt, and one volunteer will be selected at random to win a premium prize! If you would like to volunteer, please contact

Thank you and GO ACES!

* Pep and Vim, the UE Annual Day of Giving, is April 14, 2023 – Click to learn more!

First created by a UE alumnus, “Pep and Vim,” UE’s Annual Day of Giving, was brought to life in 2012. We shouted our school spirit from the rooftops, and we were honored that the Aces community responded to our first Pep and Vim by making 250 philanthropic gifts that totaled over $5,000.

Flash forward to April 2022, Pep and Vim’s 10-year anniversary, and you can see how UE’s Day of Giving has grown over the last decade. Over 2,000 gifts were made to the university, totaling over $400,000. Gifts came in from 44 states, providing opportunities for growth within all 3 academic colleges on campus, as well as for Harlaxton College and UE Athletics.

Now it’s time for Pep and Vim 2023, and with you by our side, we know we can up our game once more. The UE Alumni Board of Directors has issued a philanthropic challenge! If, as one Aces family, we make 2,023 gifts to any UE project, they will gift $20,000 to the UEvansville Fund!

Sometimes philanthropy can feel too big for us as individuals. But when we join together, we can change the lives of countless others. That’s why, at UE, everyone can be a philanthropist. Whether you can give $5 or $5,000, your gift will move the University of Evansville FORWARD into a bright and hopeful future.

To make a gift and help unlock the Alumni Board’s challenge, please visit

Thank you and GO ACES!

* Let's Talk About Race (Administrators, Faculty, Staff)

The racial issues that have continued to plague our campus have revealed that having meaningful conversations about race is essential to combatting racism. Silence, after all, simply reinforces the status quo. However, we never learn how to talk about race in school or in our homes. If anything, we have learned not to talk about it.

Because talking about race is hard but necessary, CDEI is hosting Talking about Race discussion sessions for UE employees. The purpose of these 90-minute structured sessions is to practice talking about race and racism and to develop skills and understanding that will help participants foster a culture of inclusion on campus.

These conversations will be conducted in small groups, so space is limited. To join a conversation or for more information, please email Dr. Valerie Stein at vs9. Dates (in April) and times will be determined based on participant schedules.

* The Menstrual Equity Club presents Jampon on April 2, 2023

The Menstrual Equity Club will present Jampon- a Jam for Pads and Tampons at the University of Evansville campus on April 2, 2023. Jampon is a one-night-only fundraiser, cabaret, and presentation of art created by UE students that benefits the Evansville YWCA, a domestic violence shelter and outreach program.

Each year, Jampon collects donations of menstrual products and monetary donations for the YWCA through admission to the event. The event also seeks to normalize menstruation and raise awareness about period poverty, or, the inability to afford period products. UE students perform music, comedy routines, dance pieces, and other forms of performance art. Art made and donated by students is also available for purchase, with all proceeds going directly to the YWCA.

Jampon will be held in Eykamp Hall at 5 p.m. and will go on until 7 p.m. The cost of admission is one box of period products (ie. pads or tampons), or a monetary donation to the organization via either cash or Venmo. Art and t-shirts made by UE students will be available for purchase, and performances will occur for the entire duration. The performance lineup for this year includes a variety of musical performances as well as standup comedy. For those who cannot attend in person, a livestream will be available through Jampon’s Instagram account, @JamponUE.

* UE Secures $30 Million Grant to Create Evansville Promise Neighborhood

 The University of Evansville (UE) has announced the receipt of a $30 million federal grant program through the United States Department of Education (DOE) that will establish the Evansville's Promise Neighborhood (EPN). UE is part of a new cohort funded in 2023. Only three Neighborhoods in the nation were awarded in 2023.

The aim of the funding is to assist children and youth who are growing up in Promise Neighborhoods, providing them with access to outstanding schools as well as robust family and community support systems. These resources will help prepare them to achieve academic excellence, make the transition to college, and, ultimately, embark on a successful career.

The University of Evansville, as lead applicant, submitted the 2022 grant application to the DOE for an Evansville Promise Neighborhood on October 7, 2022, with a total request of $30 million over five years. Twenty-three Evansville Promise Neighborhood partner agencies accounted for a match totaling $32,497,295.55, for a total of more than $62 million to be invested in the community. This figure comes from the cost invested in providing wraparound care services to the schools and neighborhoods designated as the Evansville Promise Neighborhood. The Promise Neighborhood includes six schools: Evans Elementary School, Delaware Elementary School, Lincoln School, Bosse High School, Lodge Community School, and Glenwood Leadership Academy. The major partners for the EPN are UE, EVSC, E-REP, and the Evansville Promise Zone.
