Donate to Philosophy

Greg Hall auditorium


We are proud of the many accomplishments of our talented, nationally and internationally recognized faculty who produce groundbreaking scholarship and provide a superior educational experience for students in our two undergraduate programs (BALAS in Philosophy and BSLAS in Computer Science + Philosophy) and also our PhD program. Our undergraduate students are intellectually engaged inside and outside the classroom, and are trained in methods of interdisciplinary study. This prepares them to go on to successful careers in a wide variety of fields, as well as further study in graduate school, law school, and medical school.

As one of the oldest departments on campus that is also central to the liberal arts, we are excited about the centrality of our department’s mission and welcome your generous investment in it. Support from our Philosophy alumni and friends can help us provide the best possible learning and research environment for our students and faculty members. Your donations will allow us to:

  • Offer scholarships to academically strong undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to those with financial need, including first-generation and under-represented students
  • Recruit and retain the best faculty members
  • Provide state-of-the-art facilities that house important research and teaching
  • Provide  professional development opportunities for our students

Please consider donating in support of any of these areas through a gift to department. Your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law. Click here to see the various fund options for your gift, as well as the funds’ purposes.
