Thank You, Donors

Our department has been the recipient of funding from individuals and foundations. In this era when state and government funding is decreasing, private funding and donation become even more important for our survival and quality programming. This money allows us to support graduate students research and travel, provide professional development for pre-service and in-service teachers, and to maintain some of our existing activities. We are incredibly grateful to our donors of their support of our mission. We are a stronger university because of the fists you make to us and our programs. Thank you!

Our Alumni Step Up! Won't you join them?

Several alumni make contributions each year. Please consider joining them by donating to our department. Larger donations earn you recognition on our Wall of Champions and membership in the CNSM Fellows. Small gifts go a long way as well! A gift of $25 or $50 allows us to do thing that our budget does not allow. For example, we can provide refreshments at our STAR Seminar Events, purchase new books for our resource library, or provide support for graduate students to attend professional conferences. We are grateful to all our donors and encourage you to consider doing what you can to help our department grow.
