Supporting the College


At present, our top funding priorities include:The success of the College of Arts & Letters reflects the devotion of many people: students, faculty and staff, but also members of the community. We invite you to support the College.

  • creating endowed faculty chairs and building scholarships for deserving students
  • underwriting faculty development to attend national conferences, support research activities and present documented work
  • developing a program for equipment contributions to assist the departments of music and theatre & dance
  • strengthening college initiatives to provide faculty the resources to create new courses, symposia, and study

It is only through the partnership and generosity of alumni, friends, and the community that we are able to offer vibrant, quality programs.  To learn about these or other priorities in support of the College of Arts & Letters or various ways to designate gifts of cash, pledges, gifts in kind, or stock gifts, please contact Tess Dyer, Interim Director of Development, at or (916) 278-5184.
