Alumni Giving

Alumni giving has been absolutely crucial to maintaining the level of excellence in our undergraduate and graduate programs. In the past year alone, we have relied on generous donations from our alumni to support the following:

  • the production of our annual newsletter
  • a variety of undergraduate and graduate student scholarships
  • funding for the department’s annual awards banquet
  • vital faculty research support
  • the creation of a new undergraduate student lounge, and
  • travel grants to all of our graduate students who have a paper accepted for presentation at a major national or international conference.

None of this would have been possible without the thoughtful generosity of our alumni. We thank all of our donors and hope that you will consider pledging your support to the department’s continued excellence.
