Grants Update: Fall 2018

Each year, Worsfold Grants support student-led service projects on campus and in the community

Dr. Victor Worsfold was an Arts & Humanities professor from 1975-2001. He taught courses in ethics, social and political philosophy, the philosophy of education, and humanities. Dr. Worsfold passed away in 2013 but will always remain an esteemed member of the McDermott family. These grants are just one way that his legacy lives on.
