Giving to the Department

The Department of Nutrition is grateful for the continued generosity of its many supporters. This generosity plays a large part in the department’s ability to provide financial support for our students and faculty. Interested parties may contribute to the department’s general enrichment fund or to more specialized funds.

Unrestricted Funds

The Nutrition Enrichment Fund was established for the purpose of supporting faculty and student exploratory research and new instructional initiatives. The funds are distributed by the Nutrition department head only when faculty (and students who are working with faculty) submit proposals and budget justification statements that describe the purpose and need for the project and what the outcomes will be if the project is funded. Often, enrichment funds are used as seed money to support new research and teaching initiatives that lead to the preparation of much larger proposals.

Donate HERE to the Nutrition Enrichment Fund.

Restricted Funds

The Department of Nutrition has grown into one of the top research and preparatory programs in the country, focusing on preventive health, acute and chronic care, and identifying those cellular and genetic mechanisms that are the basis for health and disease. Our faculty and students are the foundation for our ability to translate the impact of diet on health and well-being. The Department of Nutrition has specific funds which support particular aspects of its programs. Restricted gifts may be made to the funds below.
