Giving Recognition

The college gratefully honors the generous support of alumni and friends who advance our work in science education, research and outreach. We recognize our donors as a way to thank them and promote the importance of philanthropy to our success.

The Dean’s Circle

The Dean’s Circle is the leadership giving society of the College of Sciences. It was created to encourage unrestricted annual gifts of $1,000 or more to the college’s Excellence Fund and Enhancement Funds for each of its six academic departments. Our 2019-20 Dean’s Circle membership featured 200 donors.

The college directs this unrestricted support toward top priorities such as:

  • Scholarships and fellowships
  • Student programs
  • Research support
  • Student and faculty recruitment activities
