Gifts to the Department of Biological Sciences are much appreciated and provide an excellent return on investment. Funds are used to support academic activities of undergraduate and graduate students. These include:

  • purchasing reagents and supplies to support independent research projects that undergraduates perform under the guidance of one of our faculty;
  • sponsoring extracurricular programs that enhance the students educational experience beyond the classroom;
  • supporting travel to national and international meetings for students to give talks or present posters that describe their research;
  • covering publication costs for students to publish their findings;
  • acquiring new equipment for performing modern biological research critical for maintaining productivity and generating new, fundamental knowledge of living systems; and
  • maintaining existing departmental equipment used by faculty and students in addressing cutting edge questions that bear on human health and the health of our planet.
