Are You In the Circle?
The Dean's Circle recognizes the generosity of alumni, friends, faculty and staff who make annual gifts of $500 or more to the Dean's Fund for Excellence. As a member of the Dean's Circle, your investment helps meet the educational needs of our students; take advantage of extraordinary opportunities and meet new challenges in teaching, research and service. The Dean's Fund for Excellence provides the resources needed to: fund scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students; offer students and faculty seed grants for pursuing new research interests and other academic endeavors; provide scholarships and awards to students for travel abroad experiences and experiential learning; invest in new technologies and equipment; improve classrooms, labs and other facilities.
To demonstrate our appreciation, members receive invitations to events hosted by the Dean and on-campus lectures and symposiums. In addition, Dean's Circle members are recognized in CLASnotes magazine, the e-newsletter of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and online on the Dean's Circle honor roll.
Membership is based on a fiscal-year calendar from July 1 to June 30.
