Make a Gift

All gifts to the Institute of Diversity Sciences are deeply appreciated. Gifts will be used to support research projects on human diversity, disparities, or equity, and to share that work with the public.

Gifts will help fund mentored research opportunities for students, especially students who are underrepresented in science, engineering, and technology. Funds will also allow us to bring external speakers to campus whose professional work in research, business, or practice advances the science of diversity or has clear impact on social problems related to disparities.

Speakers will share their work with students and faculty, offer professional development workshops for students, and serve as visible role models.  We will pay special attention to the diversity of external speakers we invite.
