FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my support important?
Your support enables the College to attract and retain the highest caliber of faculty, students and programming through student scholarships, resources for bringing cutting edge advances in clinical training and technology into the classroom, and special initiatives that expose our students and faculty to the field’s leading scholars.
Help us to continue providing the quality of education expected of an internationally recognized institution serving the best and brightest minds in Illinois and beyond.
Why is unrestricted giving important?
An unrestricted gift is simply a gift with no restrictions from the donor on how it is to be used. Such gifts support the college by allowing the Dean flexibility in determining how best to use the funding where it can have the greatest impact, address priorities, and bring immediate benefits to the college as a whole by supporting:
- Student scholarships
- Curricular development
- Faculty development and recruitment
- Technology upgrades in classrooms and laboratories
Can I support a specific program?
Absolutely! To help departments and programs meet their most pressing needs, many alumni and friends choose to designate a gift to an established and specialized fund. Learn more.
