Private Support

Gifts from donors -- including alumni, friends, firms, allied professions, foundations, and other organizations -- provide key funding for many areas in the College of Design.

Many programs outside the regular budget could not be sustained without donor support. Here are just a few examples of areas that are impacted by private gifts:

  • Scholarships and Fellowships
  • Public lectures
  • Sponsorship of visiting scholars
  • Communication with alumni and donors via publications
  • Recruitment and recognition of students with prizes and other awards
  • Faculty in their teaching, research, and outreach activities
  • Research and outreach units
