Support the School of Arts & Sciences

Learn, Discover, Heal, Create—and Make the World Ever Better

A strong liberal arts education is at the heart of the School of Arts & Sciences, and at the University of Rochester. For us, this means teaching more than the arts and humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences—it means sparking curiosity, a thirst for knowledge, and a drive to address and solve problems that cut across disciplines.

We are steadfast in our commitment to our students and our faculty, and to providing a world-class academic and research experience. Please join us—gifts of any size help us make the world ever better.

Your generosity can support:

  • Scholarships and fellowships
