Giving to the COEHS

 

The UNF College of Education and Human Services strives to inspire our students to be difference makers. Whether they end up working in classrooms, athletic fields, or anywhere in between, our students have been afforded opportunities to learn in hands-on, collaborative environments prior to graduation. 


Annual Giving

Each year, the University of North Florida relies on the generosity of alumni and friends to provide immediate support for College of Education and Human Services 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.


Endowed Major Giving

An endowed gift to the College of Education and Human Services 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 education and human services.
  • Endow a Program. Program endowments facilitate research opportunities for students and faculty, curriculum development, internships, interdisciplinary work, experiential learning and academic enrichment.
