- Coretta Jenerette, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity

  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned Vegetables

  • Potatoes
  • Proteins
  • Breakfast items
  • Toiletries
  • Need based monetary scholarships
  • Professional uniform attire appropriate for clinical (top, bottom, lab coat)
  • Professional clothing appropriate for interviews, presentations, etc.
