Giving to the College

The CHS Office of Advancement is committed to increasing financial support, which advances the College's mission of teaching, research, and service. When you visit a physician’s office, medical laboratory, sporting event, school, hospital or clinic, chances are your life will be impacted by a health sciences professional. Health Sciences, or allied health, professionals come from many diverse disciplines.There are more than 200 allied health care fields, making up nearly 60 percent of the health care workforce. From the laboratory to the therapy room, allied health professionals play an integral role in health care. Become part of our vision for a brighter tomorrow by investing in the College of Health Sciences. An investment in CHS is an opportunity to launch the ripple that will make waves of change. It is the chance to empower all our dreams for a healthier future.
