You Make Us Great

Your tax-deductible contribution provides our students with encouragement and vital financial support. It gives our faculty resources for enlarging knowledge and understanding. It helps to build and sustain a distinguished reputation for the department.

What Your Gift Can Do

Your contribution allows us to ensure:

  • A distinguished faculty: creating endowed chairs and professorships and supporting interdisciplinary research centers and programs will help us recruit and retain outstanding faculty.
  • A diverse and engaged undergraduate student body: although we are attracting better students than ever before, too many other outstanding students choose other institutions—often for financial reasons. Merit and need-based scholarships are needed to recruit many outstanding students.
  • Support for interdisciplinary opportunities for graduate students:  Through the many research centers, programs, and initiatives, IGS supports opportunities for graduate students from across disciplines and invites them to engage in interdisciplinary work.  This supports recruitment and excellence across graduate programs.
