Why Give to the College of Health Sciences?

The challenges that our clinicians, researchers, educators, alumni and students face are different than ever before. The health care landscape continuously changes, yet we are committed to educating clinicians and leaders who are ready and willing to take on these challenges. We have faculty that inspire, students enthralled with the discovery of knowledge, researched fueled by passion and places that need the services we can provide. What we are missing are the financial resources to recruit leading faculty, to fund student scholarships, to provide our researchers with the resources they need and to sponsor service learning experiences. These dreams are within reach through your financial gifts.

Regardless of the amount you choose to give, you can make a difference. Each gift that is given to the College of Health Sciences is important. Financial gifts aren’t only beneficial to the college. They can also help you achieve personal fulfillment, provide you with an income for life and serve as a tax benefit.
