Trash Mountain

Brett Durbin, bs '03, mcj '05, works internationally leading an organization in Topeka to defeat extreme poverty

Brett Durbin in a trash mountain community

Brett Durbin and his wife felt a call to serve others after graduating. A friend introduced him to the concept of a trash dump community – a group of people who live on and dig through landfills in search of food or items to sell.

Marching Bods

More than 140 donors stepped forward to help fund new uniforms for the marching band

Marching Band crowdfunding project funded

The Marching Ichabods will have new uniforms this fall thanks to everyone who gave to this Impact crowdfunding project, especially David Woods, b music '65, dean emeritus, University of Connecticut, and Ted Yungclas, who matched dollar for dollar every gift up to $50,000. We can all get excited when the band comes through the tailgate area and takes the field at home football games this year! See current Impact projects.
