The College of Arts and Sciences Centennial Fund was created at the request of President William LaForge through his direction of a portion of a generous unrestricted grant provided to the University by the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation.
In recognition of the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation’s special contribution, it is our goal for the College of Arts and Sciences alumni, faculty, staff and friends to match the $2,000 allocated to the College. This additional support will create a source of funding which will help increase the College’s ability to address some of its most important priorities.
Gifts to this fund contribute to the College of Arts and Sciences’ faculty development, scholarships, research and services, equipment, hardware, and software.
The community of learners in the College of Arts and Sciences is composed of 115 faculty, 1,250 undergraduate majors, and 100 graduate majors. We are proud of the quality and value of our educational programs. Students are encouraged to develop their talents in courses which improve communication, analytical thinking, and problem solving.
