Chairs & Scholarships


We have identified three projects and three scholarship funds for which we want to pursue capital funding from outside sources. Each of these projects will build on existing strengths within the Department and help us to provide better educational opportunities at the undergraduate and graduate level. If you would like additional information about these projects, or if you would like to help us reach these goals, please contact Dr. Michael Thomas. Donations to these funds are fully tax deductible.
