Giving to CLAS


The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences challenges students to create a different space—one in which they interact with each other and with the world around them in new and exciting ways. They learn to balance abstract thought with pragmatic responsiveness. Students are challenged to think more broadly, more deeply and more independently than ever before. They gain the confidence to take risks and they learn to act compassionately by working alongside their professors and fellow students in the classroom, in laboratories and in the broader community. 

By investing in this college, you are touching the lives of virtually all students at the university and transforming the region and state through well-prepared future citizen-leaders—our students. With your investment, you leverage discovery for the public benefit through programs of research, creative activities and graduate education that span the disciplines.

Gifts made to create an endowed fund are invested for perpetuity. A portion of the earned income is then used to support the fund’s purpose. Any excess earnings are reinvested, allowing the fund to grow. Endowments may be created for student scholarships and fellowships, faculty chairs and professorships, or many other purposes. For more information, contact Judy Lekoski,
