Why give to the Department of Earth Sciences?
The faculty and staff in the department are committed to advancing the educational and scholarly mission of the university. However, limited financial resources restrict our ability to develop educational opportunities that benefit our students. Donations to the department and department-related funds allow us to provide a competitive education for our growing body of undergraduates and provide for our graduate students through teaching assistantships and research grants. The department of Earth Sciences relies on outside gifts to continue funding course field trips, travel support for graduate students presenting research, postdoctoral scholars, the department seminar, facility improvements, and the undergraduate geology club.
Our department greatly appreciates your contribution!
