College of Letters and Science Fund

 

This fund represents the area of greatest need for the College. Scholarships for students, professional development opportunities for faculty and bringing speakers to campus are just a few examples of how these funds are used.

Diversity and Global Learning Initiatives Fund

Contributions to this fund will help us increase the number of courses and learning experiences abroad that enhance our students’ knowledge of and engagement with global issues and cultures. Our varied study abroad programs (we currently have faculty-led programs on six continents), our international Quest III courses within the University Studies Program (general education), and a host of student/faculty global and intercultural research projects are examples of opportunities made possible through donor generosity.

Student/Facility Collaborative Research Fund

With this fund we are increasing the priceless opportunities for our students to engage in research collaborations with our faculty.  The value of students’ active involvement in empirical observation, cutting-edge technologies and discovery simply cannot be understated.  And the benefits for faculty and the wider community are significant as well.  Gifts to this fund allow us to provide travel support for presenting research results at professional conferences and to offer stipends to upper level students who might otherwise need to work in jobs unrelated to their fields of study.

Service and Community-Based Learning

The College currently provides field-based experiential learning through community partnerships.  Students apply their coursework through service opportunities, and at the same time, they acquire an understanding of the importance of good citizenship and of giving back to the community.
