New Wilson Day
In 1987, ithe original format of Wilson Day was no longer as effective as it had initially been in encompassing all the interests of its namesake.
Two years later, in 1989, a new Wilson Day, built around community service, was begun--through the inspiration and efforts of Theresa Guenther (UR 1990).
It is a day full of the kinds of things Wilson prized in his life: ideas nurtured throughout his own student days at the University, and emblematic of his leadership as a Trustee: generosity, kindness, welcoming diversity of opinion.
Since 1989, more than 25,000 students, faculty and staff have contributed over 100,000 hours to assist social agencies, hospitals, schools, and parks.
