Dr. Jo Anne Safrit Gives to University Libraries

Dr. Safrit
The University Libraries wish to thank Dr. Jo Anne Safrit (’57) a member of the Excellence Foundation at UNCG, for her recent gift to the University Libraries Enrichment Fund, where it will support the Women Veterans Project.  Other recipients of her most recent gift include the UNCG Alumni Association Fund, the Spartan Athletics Scholarship Fund, the New York Theatre Showcase, and the Jo Anne Safrit Undergraduate Kinesiology Scholarship Income Fund.

After obtaining her B.S. from UNCG, she earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and received
an honorary Doctorate in Education from the Shanghai University of Sport.  Now retired and living in Greensboro, she was previously the Henry-Bascom Professor for the University of Wisconsin at Madison and Chair of the Department of Health and Fitness.

In thirty one years of giving to UNCG, Dr. Safrit has given three scholarships and a research fund.  The University Libraries are proud to be among those campus institutions that she has supported.
