The College of Environmental Design receives annual support from alumni, faculty and friends through gifts to the Annual Fund. This consistent, ongoing source of funding is essential to the operation and growth of the College.
Support to the area of greatest need enables ENV to maintain and advance its 24/7 learning environment - most especially the high technology infrastructure that affords our students to lead their professions rather than simply following trends.
A scholarship gift allows us to recruit and retain the best and brightest students. Though ENV is currently ranked at the top of its field, it must stay competitive by offering scholarships to worthy candidates who lack the financial resources to attend college.
Equally compelling is ENV's need to attract scholars to its graduate programs. Frequently, students seeking advanced degrees are attracted to ENV's programs and reputation, but are forced to accept positions at universities where graduate scholarships, awards and research opportunities are more generously funded.
What better way to make a difference than to support a student's education and have your family or business’ name associated with a scholarship forever.
ENV offers a number of naming opportunities, including signature gifts, research and buildings, centers of excellence, endowed chairs, lectureships and fellowships.
The best students are attracted to ENV in part because of its outstanding faculty. Each of the four departments and the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies is led by professionals who are recognized for their own contributions in their fields, and who are dedicated to passing their knowledge on to students.
