Each year the generosity of our alumni and friends provides students in need with essential financial assistance or awards accomplished students for their outstanding achievement. These philanthropic gifts help students to succeed in obtaining their degrees, enriches the educational experience, bolsters student-led research and initiatives, and enhances experiential opportunities.

Now more than ever, private gifts are vital to our school's ability to remain a leader in training the next generation of information professionals. Every gift is important because every gift makes a statement about the importance of information education.
