Giving to Mathematics and Statistics

A gift to the Department of Mathematics & Statistics will help us attract and retain those students and faculty with great academic potential. Your gift may go to programs, scholarships, fellowships, professorships, technological innovations, research, renovations, and new facilities. We also know not everyone has the same capacity to give. Remember, the percentage of alumni and patron giving is an important endorsement of any department or program and an important indicator of the quality of our work. Each gift is valuable.
