Giving to the Department

Charitable gifts from our alumni and friends play an important role in creating and maintaining excellence in the classroom and the field. We are thankful and greatly appreciate those who have generously given to the Department in the past. We continue to depend on friends and alumni for their support. Your gift will make a difference! Any size gift helps the Department in our quest for excellence.

Your support will provide the Department with the ability to continue to offer scholarships and enhance our teaching, research, and outreach programs.

Continuing budget cuts, growing numbers of students, continually rising tuition, and soaring textbook costs create an urgent need to increase our ability to provide quality educational experience that will prepare our students for employment and leadership roles in the 21st century.

For those interested in creating a named endowment, options include endowing faculty chairs or creating an endowment that provides support for existing or new teaching, research, and extension initiatives. You may also wish to make a charitable gift to an existing endowment or scholarship fund within the school. Giving to the school can be in the form of a future estate gift, outright giving, appreciated securities, and monthly automatic deduction.
