Charlotte M. Rudkin Memorial Fund

This fund is dedicated to Charlotte Rudkin (BSW '97), a JMU alumna and Semester in London Academic Coordinator for 10 years.  She and her husband, Jerry Burgess (PsyD '04), were dedicated to the London program and touched the lives of hundreds of students and dozens of faculty members.  Charlotte passed away in August of 2015 after a 2 1/2-year battle with cancer.  This fund, established by her husband and sister, will be used to help students travel to London and the wider UK and to experience the culture and country Charlotte loved.
