Geological Sciences Giving Opportunities

The Geological Sciences faculty are committed to highly effective teaching as well as to the quality of the scientific research that characterizes the department. Faculty educate students to be well-prepared geologists who can help to solve problems related to energy, resources, and the environment during this important phase of human history.

Alumni donations are very important for the function of the department.

The department has identified the following opportunities for giving:

  • Endowment to upgrade and maintain the computer lab to help keep students competitive.
  • Space for research—both graduate and undergraduate—either through renovation or construction. 
  • An endowment that could pay one or two Research Assistants per year. This would help the department to recruit the best graduate students to the program.
