Fund for Excellence

Gifts to the Fund for Excellence allow the Department Chair to designate funds to the area of greatest need. This flexible funding account allows the Department to seize on new opportunities that emerge and support specific programs, for example, the senior honors' program, equipment expenses for teaching, and activities to support career education. It also enables us to allocate financial resources to all of our funding categories, which can be used for:

  • attracting and hiring the best faculty and graduate students
  • supporting and rewarding the research activities of students
  • creating innovative and top quality undergraduate learning programs
  • providing technology and equipment for teaching labs
  • developing media and collaborative learning labs
