Giving is a powerful and impactful expression of commitment to growth and sustainability of Tougaloo College. While constituents often think tuition is the true cost of education, the reality is that tuition covers only 50% of the cost associated with providing each student with a four year undergraduate degree.

Participating Panelists include: Anthony Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases Thomas Dobbs, M.D., state health officer for the Mississippi State Department of Health Obie McNair, M.D., physician and chief operating officer of Central Mississippi Health Services, Inc.
