Help our students forge their path in Arts & Sciences

When you support the College of Arts & Sciences on Husky Giving Day, you're investing in the future. You're helping our students find their path, their voice, and their passions! You're empowering vital research, teaching, and community impact. Whether you're passionate about supporting the next generation of artists or investing in justice and equity work, the opportunities to make a difference through the College are endless.  

This Husky Giving Day, nearly twenty Arts & Sciences departments are inviting friends and supporters to come together to make an impact. In the past year, our departments have gone through profound changes in the way that they conduct research and teaching and how they ensure student success. Your support is more meaningful now than ever before. 

During this 24-hour period, when you give to our departments or the Arts & Sciences Excellence Fund supporting priorities across the College, you help unlock challenge funds that will maximize your impact on Husky Giving Day.
