Why I Give: Susan Haire


Susan Haire

Name: Susan B. Haire

Position: Director of Criminal Justice Studies and Professor of Political Science in the School of Public and International Affairs, Women’s Studies faculty member in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences

At UGA: 23 years

Beneficiary of her gift to the university: Susette M. Talarico Fund

Why she contributes: “I have donated to several funds established in SPIA that support students and also recognize those who have shaped the lives of many here on campus.

“Dr. Charles Bullock recently celebrated his 50th year of teaching here at UGA. Along with many others, I contributed to a fund established in his name that will provide support for student experiential learning.  For the past 10 years, I have been donating to the Susette M. Talarico Fund, which is used for student programming and scholarships in criminal justice.

“Payroll deduction has been an easy way for me to contribute to a fund that helps students and strengthens the legacy of a former colleague who championed criminal justice studies and served as a mentor to many of us.”
