The Telejackets is our campus-wide student calling program. The program employs over 20 current students that connect with Alumni and other friends of the Baldwin Wallace community.

Primary goals of the Telejackets student calling program

  • To educate the BW community about the importance of supporting annual giving
  • To provide information regarding current events taking place on campus
  • To update demographic information on alumni and the community

Has the program been successful in the past? 

In the 2012-2013 academic year, the Telejacket Student Calling Program produced its most successful year to date. The Telejackets were able to record over 6,000 pledges totalling more than $700,000 - almost half of the total amount raised for Annual Giving - from generous BW alumni, parents and friends.
