Annual Fund Priorities

Over the past two years, we have endured many tests and learned important lessons about the strength of our community. ComArtSci has grown and changed during these difficult times. We have relied on values of transparency, compassion and inclusion as our guiding lights. Despite the challenges of this pandemic, exciting changes are underway, and we are tackling important initiatives for the college. You have the potential to make a difference in the lives of our students through your philanthropy. 

The collective power of our alumni has sustained us over the years, and continues to propel us forward. Any contribution you make would ensure the future of ComArtSci Spartans. Your gifts allow us to expand programs, accommodate student interests and provide innovative programs. 


Dean’s General Fund

The Dean’s fund for the college helps us create innovative programming, invest in new opportunities, and sustain academic programs along with other current needs. These funds bridge the gap between appropriated funds and what is needed in order to provide the very best experience.

Student Emergency Fund

Spartans work hard to earn their college degree, relying on a combination of student loans, savings and part-time jobs to afford higher education. When adversity strikes, they may not have the resources to weather the storm. The goal of the Student Emergency Fund is to answer a desperate need for students in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences. Relying primarily upon referrals, the fund provides students with small sums of money to overcome unexpected obstacles – obstacles that could be the only barrier to getting a degree. The Student Emergency Fund will be used to help students with unexpected needs and small fees that impact their ability to focus on being a student. Learn more here

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programming

ComArtSci aims to foster a supportive environment where every student, staff member and faculty feels valued, supported and inspired to achieve individual and common goals. This includes providing opportunity and access for all people throughout the college including individuals of different cultures, identities, backgrounds, ethnicities and abilities. Resources are required to improve and expand college-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion programming, especially with scholarships and programmatic funds to improve access.
