Dr. Melissa Gibson opens doors for Edinboro students

Melissa GibsonDr. Melissa Gibson, professor and graduate program head of the Master of Arts in Communication Studies, is opening doors for Edinboro students through the faculty and staff campaign. Here's why:

“I believe strongly in the mission of Edinboro University. As an alum, when I came back to teach, it was with the intent that I would try to give the same great education to my students as was given to me. Giving back through monetary donations is important to help with things such as student scholarships, events and programmatic needs.”

Will you open doors for Edinboro students this spring?
