CS Giving Opportunities

Home to more than 600 undergraduate students, 100 graduate students, and 17 faculty, the School of Computer Science is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the college.  To ensure CS students have the facilities, programs and teaching excellence needed to succeed, the school must secure strategic resources to recruit, retain and graduate the very best.

You have the ability to change lives and contribute to the success of CS. Whether you would like to make an annual gift to the School or set up your own named scholarship fund, there are infinite possibilities.
