Support our school

The School of Design relies on philanthropic support from alumni, parents, faculty, and friends to assist in our educational work and research. Whether your gift supports scholarships, new productions or exhibitions, facility renovations, or faculty support, you are having a direct, visible impact on our students. It is our promise to our students to connect them with the best educators and practitioners, expose them to unique and challenging opportunities, and provide hands-on experiences in a supportive and nurturing environment. Thank you for choosing to give to the School of Design.
