We appreciate your generosity
The Department of Human Development and Family Sciences welcomes private support, which may be used for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and for special activities such as seminars and lectures. Private support provides an edge for excellence. It allows us to reward top scholarly effort and to competitively recruit students and faculty.
You can make a gift to the Department in honor of a faculty member or friend. Your gift can support an existing scholarship or fund, or it may create a new fund for current needs or an endowment to support programs into the future.
For more information about giving to the department, or to give by mail, please contact one of our CLAS development officers.
