Endowment Donors

Importance of Endowed Funds

The capital base of an institution is its endowment, providing funds in perpetuity to fuel progress in teaching while underpinning its research enterprise. In the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, our endowment allows us to be less dependent upon less predictable sources of income, ensuring that our programs and people have the resources they need to sustain and grow their work in the future. We are truly grateful to the following donors who have created endowed funds within the College. Their generosity will have a positive impact on our faculty and students for generations to come.
