Thank you so much to our generous donors who have contributed to the sandbox.’s original goal of $2,000. We are now able to make more technology and workshops available to all students on the University of Memphis campus regardless of major, degree program, or year of study. We would like to see if we can expand the sandbox. even further by doubling our original goal and raising $4,000 total, doubling the amount of technology and workshops originally planned — we’re already over halfway to our new goal!
Expanding the sandbox. is important to our community. Most of the technology elsewhere on campus is funded by grants which have specific requirements that limits its use to students in a particular major or taking a specific course. the sandbox. at the University Libraries provides free technology to all University of Memphis staff, faculty, and students, be they first-year composition students, senior economics majors, or doctoral candidates in chemistry. By empowering students with access to technology and workshops they might not have access to elsewhere, the sandbox. enables students from a range of disciplines to collaborate alongside each other and inspire one another. Students in degree programs not traditionally associated with technology have often requested workshops to help them learn how to use various computer programs or pieces of equipment. By giving to the sandbox., you encourage a collaborative and multidisciplinary spirit across campus in a supportive and innovative environment!
Thank you from the sandbox. team,
