The departments and programs of the College of Arts and Sciences are the heart of our liberal arts education at Mary Washington, supporting student learning both inside and outside the classroom.
To continue and grow support for student learning opportunities, the College of Arts and Sciences aims to build a $1 million endowed fund – Beyond the Classroom: An Endowment for Student Research and Learning. Reaching the $1 million goal will enable the College of Arts and Sciences to provide approximately $40,000 every year to support high-impact student learning experiences that take our students beyond the classroom.
After reaching a milestone of $250,000 at the end of 2021, our goal is to reach a half million dollars by the end of 2022, all to help support future UMW students in their experiential learning.
Your gift will provide support to students who participate in internships that help advance their professional lives, international experiences that bring depth to their understanding of the world, and high-quality research projects that enhance their academic resumes.
As an added incentive for Giving Day 2022, if 750 gifts are made to the Beyond the Classroom Endowment or any academic program within the College of Arts and Sciences on Mary Wash Giving Day, it will unlock a $15,000 gift from Professor Emeritus, Dr. Jack Kramer to the Beyond the Classroom Endowment. Please consider supporting the College of Arts and Sciences by donating directly to the departments or programs of your choice by choosing from the menu on the giving form, or give directly to our endowment by choosing Beyond the Classroom.
