The College of Natural Sciences Office of External Relations builds philanthropic and community partnerships with alumni, friends, corporations and foundations. We work to advance the College's relationships with constituents and facilitate gifts and pledges of all types, from outright giving to endowments to estate planning. We handle numerous College events and alumni networking opportunities and promote two-way communications with graduates of the College. We also raise funds to build technologically superior buildings and laboratories, deliver cutting-edge research and educational programs, provide students with exceptional and unforgettable student experiences, attract the world's best scientists and students, and find solutions to society's most pressing problems. Our goals are to support community and fulfill donors' interests, while representing the dean's priority initiatives to our external constituency.
