Department Excellence Fund

Details

The department has many ongoing expenses, including office supplies, copying, software, and even scholarships. In addition, faculty like to give handouts so that students do not need tablets and computers in class that can be distracting. Also, faculty travel to conferences to present their research and for learning from others. An excellence fund allows the department to fund such operational expenses.

Cost

$100,000 as an endowed fund.
