Alumni and friends provide essential support for the Department of Biological Science’s teaching and research missions contributing to solutions to some of society's most pressing environmental and health problems and educating the problem solvers of the future. Through annual unrestricted support and major gifts designated for special purposes, your generosity plays a critical role in our ability to fulfill our mission and is not only deeply appreciated but also greatly needed.
Your unrestricted gift provides the Department with flexibility to support whatever areas are most in need. Recent gifts have supported our annual Darwin Day celebrations, improvements to the course-based undergraduate research experiences (e.g., BIOL 270, 271, and 272), and new microscopes for the histology lab.
Help ensure that the problem solvers of the future receive the best training and education possible by supporting field trips, research opportunities, teaching laboratory equipment, and undergraduate fellowships and awards.
Support graduate education and the future research capabilities of our State and Nation with gifts for graduate fellowships, research travel, research supplies and equipment, attendance at symposia, and tuition support.
