In order to remain engaged and competitive with our land-grant peer institutions, we must provide critical funds to increase programmatic offerings to our students and faculty, allowing us to provide leadership through innovative education, research and service. We want to provide our students with engaged learning opportunities through internships, service learning, global opportunities and unique programs and research. We want to recruit and retain distinguished scholars to join the tradition of excellence established by our current faculty. These funds allow the Dean to direct resources to these and other critical areas.give now
