Support Our Programs

Students in the College of Fine and Applied Arts are encouraged to experience their education. These educational experiences are enhanced by the generosity of our donors, who have the ability to impact a student's experience in so many ways. It may be a trip to the Appalachian Loft in New York City to buy fabric for a design class, attending a communication seminar with other aspiring broadcasters or even going to Africa to study sustainability and ways we can help our neighbors in Ghana. 

If you have a particular funding priority or would like to know more about a department's current initiatives, please contact Development Officer Laura Laughridge
