FUNDING PRIORITIES

Transform teaching and learning through a focus on first-generation students and global education ($15 million)

Nearly one in three College of Liberal Arts students is the first in their family to attend college, making scholarships and programmatic support an essential fundraising priority for the college. We are also focused on providing our students with global experiences. You can establish a Regents’ Scholarship for first-generation students with a $100,000 endowed gift. You can also fund endowed global study scholarships starting at $25,000.

Expand innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities ($10 million)

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative will help students learn to recognize an unfulfilled need and develop a solution, thereby contributing to society and the economy. We hope to offer our students a minor and certificate program that gives students the tools to establish, manage and enhance transformational business ventures. Endowed gifts of $25,000 or more will support this initiative.

Advance brain science ($10 million)

The College of Liberal Arts’ Brain Science Initiative within the Department of Psychology places us on the brink of unprecedented scientific discovery. The college’s core group of brain scientists is trained in cutting-edge techniques in neuroimaging and psycho-physiological measurements. Endowed gifts for this initiative at $25,000 or more will support research to treat and prevent countless diseases and disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Alzheimer’s disease.

Enhance the Digital Humanities ($5 million)

Digital humanities sit at the crossroads of humanities research and data sciences using the latest technology. Endowed funding of $25,000 or more will support the digitization of archival materials for generations to come.
