Support the College of Science

Building a future of discovery, together

We believe our faculty, researchers and students can change the world we live in for the better. Endowed positions, student scholarships, research funding and other forms of financial support provide our faculty and students with the flexibility and stability that lead to the 'Aha!' moments that can change our world.

Celebrating a lifetime of support

Dr. C.S. Chen graduated from the College of Science in 1964 with his Masters of Science in Physics. To honor the memory of his beloved mentor, Professor Emeritus T. Vernon Frazier, CS Chen and his wife Rufina established the JT Endowed Professorship in Physics. They hope that this endowed professorship will enable the College of Science to attract and retain proven leaders who exemplify the type of teaching and concern for students that Dr. Frazier provided.
