How to Make a Gift

A gift directed to the Department of Sociology & Criminology will help us build our strong academic programs and enhance our ability to provide students with financial assistance to meet and exceed their academic goals. Thank you for considering a gift to the Department.

Tina Hennessey, Director of the Liberal Arts Alumni Relations and Development office, will be glad to talk with you about various ways your gift might be used.  Annual gifts, which are a commitment to donate each year, typically go to undergraduate student support, enrichment opportunities like internships and study abroad, bolstering student-group activities, and enhancing the teaching experience more generally.  More substantial gifts can be used in a great variety of ways; Tina Hennessey or John Iceland, head of the Department, would be glad to talk with you about the range of options.
