Alumni and Community Resources

Crowd for Spring 2013 Commencement

The College of Liberal Arts is not merely a collection of buildings, departments and courses. People make up the living fabric of the college. Alumni, parents, advisory board members, foundations, businesses and corporations, community activists - friends of the college include all those who value the liberal arts. Because of their support, the college can offer financial assistance to students, enhance its educational programs and better serve the community.

Get Involved

The College of Liberal Arts has ongoing opportunities for alumni and friends to make significant gifts that would benefit the college as a whole or provide substantial support and growth opportunities to a specific department or program. All of our giving opportunities share a focus on providing educational excellence to the students we serve. Please explore some of our liberal arts initiatives and contact Director of Development Julie Mathews at (775) 784-6873.
