Wondering how you can you help?

As part of a state supported university, the College of Education & Integrative Studies would like your support in helping our programs and students be successful. Below is a menu of choices to consider, although all other ideas are gratefully and enthusiastically received.

Our students need help! Give any amount to a department's scholarship fund to support tuition, books, etc.
$1 to $1 million
Partners in Education Fellowship
This is a unique scholarship for teacher candidates to complete Clinical Practice without having to work. (See the display in building #6. One full scholarship is $5000. However, any amount will do!
$100 to $5000
IGE Arts Package (per student)
The Arts Package is designed to support students in IGE to attend visual and performing arts events around the greater Los Angeles area as part of the topics being studied
EWS Alternative Spring Break 
Students follow the route of the underground railroad, visiting historical sites, having a living history and cultural experience. Very powerful! (estimated per student)
Airfare $600
Hotels $600
Meals $200
Speaker Series
Create an endowment for a CEIS Speaker Series… The goal is high ($500,000), but we can start a series without an endowment for about $10,000. Get friends together to help us begin a college speaker series to bring top scholars and practitioners to campus
Node Chairs We would like to replace those awful tablet armchairs with chairs that role, swivel, and link up to make flexible configurations in classrooms—at a moment's notice! One chair is $400. $400
Building 94 Terrace
Let's make the third floor terrace a great space for students to gather. We need tables and umbrellas that meet university requirements, just like those on the second floor patio. We need 15 umbrellas and 10 more tables.
Table (1) $600
Umbrella (1) $200
Get rid of chalkboards and white boards!
Let's convert the writing spaces on our classroom walls to total whiteboard surfaces. To paint a wall with "whiteboard paint," a product that is smooth and write-able with dry-erase markers ---floor to ceiling, corner to corner, the cost of painting one wall is $200.

We have many, many more needs, these are just a few. For more information and ideas, contact:
