Ways to Give

To accomplish our goal of becoming a premier metropolitan research university, we need you as a partner. Your gifts support scholarships and awards, faculty and research, scientific discoveries and creative endeavors, technology and capital improvements, and community partnerships that cannot be funded by state and tuition support alone.
