TAG Creates Opportunities

Funding from Tuck Annual Giving creates experiential learning opportunities and career advancement for students. One such opportunity is the “career trek” program which takes students to dynamic cities to tour companies, engage with industry leaders, and meet Tuck alumni. Programs like this set Tuck apart from our peers and are made possible through the loyal generosity of alumni, like Thad Hill T'95.

Thad Hill T’95 shares how giving back to Tuck enriches both the student and alumni experience.


Thad Hill T’95, president and CEO of Calpine, a Fortune 500 power retailer, recently supported a career trek, and explains why he gives back to Tuck.

I believe that giving back to Tuck includes both money (as one can) and time. Time "giving" can be done in many ways: interviewing at Tuck for your company, answering calls and emails from students looking for jobs or with questions about yours, serving on a committee or participating in a panel discussion on campus—all of these both enrich the experience of the students as well as keep your own bonds with the school fresh.

During the career trek, Tuck students saw how Calpine deploys capital to generate electricity for millions of Californians. As Thad stated, “it is one thing to work in a classroom or an office building. It is another to see the capital deployed for both the benefit of customers and shareholders.”

These special opportunities for experiential learning and career advancement set Tuck apart from our peers and are made possible through the loyal generosity of alumni like Thad—alumni like you.

Please, make your annual gift to Tuck today.
