Funding Priorities

College of Arts & Sciences Fund for Excellence

The College of Arts & Sciences Fund for Excellence provides essential discretionary financial support, giving the Dean the flexibility to respond to the College’s greatest needs and or to act quickly when opportunities arise. These funds are among the University’s most valuable resources because they provide the Dean with the necessary support to respond to the College’s most urgent unbudgeted needs and the ability to cultivate, sustain and further academic and research excellence on both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
