Donor Recognition Event

Our 2023 Donor Recognition Event took place at the Talley Student Union on January 26. Click here for a recording of the event.

The college’s annual donor recognition event celebrates our generous donors and recognizes the achievements of our students, faculty and staff that are made possible by philanthropy.

Why Donors Matter

Scholarship support attracts top students to the College of Sciences by removing financial barriers for deserving students who will add value to our communities and make a meaningful difference in our world.

Faculty support is crucial to recruiting and retaining the best and brightest faculty while honoring their extraordinary work. Your investment provides resources for our faculty to continue to push their fields forward.

Unrestricted support allows Dean Owen to direct funds where they are needed most. Our unrestricted funds are the foundation of our financial planning for key priorities.

Thanks to your generosity, we are better positioned to make the College of Sciences one of the world’s leading centers of scientific research, innovation and creativity.
