Investing in the College

The University of North Florida’s College of Arts and Sciences is the heart of the University, the place where all undergraduates begin their UNF experience. During their time in the College, students are equipped with a broad knowledge base, a comprehensive worldview and taught to think critically and to communicate effectively.  

 

Here, undergraduates get know their professors and work alongside them on research and scholarship. Dedicated Arts and Sciences faculty help students explore new creative and academic avenues, as well as deepen their understanding of their chosen disciplines. 

Investments in UNF by alumni, parents, and friends help keep this fire growing.

 

Private investments in UNF by individuals, corporations and foundations fortify the University by allowing it to fulfill its mission, to withstand the vagaries of government funding, and to apply direct resources to areas where they will have the greatest impact.  Together, we will ensure that the College of Arts and Sciences continues to provide students with a superior education and open a world of opportunity for the next generation.

 

UNF’s present-day students and faculty are the beneficiaries of gifts made in the past;  today's gifts – your gifts – will benefit the UNF of tomorrow.  Below are some of these ways in which your support will make a direct impact:

Annual Giving

Each year, the University of North Florida relies on the generosity of alumni and friends to provide immediate support for College of Arts and Sciences and other UNF programs. All gifts, regardless of size, are combined exponentially to create the largest base of critical, unrestricted support to enhance student’s UNF experience through scholarships, student programming, out-of-classroom education, curriculum enhancement, and more.  To discuss a gift to the College, please feel free to contact Leigh Palmer, Director of Development at (904) 620-3946 or l.palmer@unf.edu.

Endowed Major Giving

An endowed gift to the College of Arts and Sciences demonstrates your greater commitment to the University by creating a permanent fund to further a specific purpose at UNF. With your investment, you may ---

  • Endow an Undergraduate Scholarship or a Graduate Fellowship.  Privately endowed scholarships and fellowships are awarded on need or merit year after year. 
  • Endow a Professorship, Chair and Scholar.  Endowed chairs, eminent scholars and distinguished visiting professors comprise some of the College’s most accomplished faculty and help to ensure academic excellence in the  Arts and Sciences.
  • Endow a Program.  Program endowments facilitate research opportunities for students and faculty, curriculum development, internships, interdisciplinary work, experiential learning and academic enrichment.
