Support Public Health
The School is in a period of tremendous growth as we transition from a program to a stand-alone school within the university system. Your support makes a world of difference by providing flexible, time sensitive funding, the Dean is able to meet new challenges, take on new projects, and support faculty and student programming.
Unrestricted Giving Opportunities
Endowed gifts are an investment in the future of our school and provides a legacy for the donor. These gifts, through cash, securities, life insurance, or charitable annuities and trusts, provide support in perpetuity. Lecture series, professorships, scholarships, and graduate fellowships are all made possible through endowed gifts.
Naming opportunities, including the naming of the School of Public Health, are available. Our development staff can work with you to structure a gift that best aligns with your financial needs. A naming gift will benefit generations of students and scholars to come leaving an individual or organizational legacy at the School of Public Health.
Other Ways to Support The School of Public Health
Student Scholarships are needed to attract the most qualified students and assist them financially in achieving their educational goals. Scholarships enable students, many of whom have significant family and financial responsibilities, to devote their time and energy to pursuing their academic goals. Scholarships can be endowed to honor an individual or organization, thus continuing in perpetuity.
The goal of Endowed Chairs is to attract eminent scholars to join the faculty.

The goal of Endowed Professorships is to attract the best and brightest teachers and scholars to join the faculty. Endowed Professorships allow faculty members to advance their research and teaching endeavors, and carry out work in community partnerships. Endowed Professorships can be created for the college or for a specific academic program.
