Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support one of these projects today or give to another area that helps the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Darrin Adams Memorial Scholarship in Sociology
This new scholarship is dedicated to sociology student and WSU staff member Darrin Adams, lost to COVID-19. TODAY ONLY, your gift is doubled when you choose to support the Darrin Adams Memorial Scholarship in Sociology. Dean Stephanie Hartwell is matching donations dollar for dollar up to $2,000.
An astronomical education resource for Wayne State students and the larger Detroit community, the Planetarium features weekly free full-dome screenings open to the public, K-12 school groups, and special interest groups. Gifts to the WSU Planetarium will improve technologies that allow hundreds of people to gaze up at the wonders of the universe free of charge. Two generous WSU alumni are currently matching all gifts up to our $25,000 goal!
Lab Coats for Chemistry Students
Help the more than 1,300 students who need a lab coat each semester obtain this critical safety item. Students are now able to get lab coats through the Cintas Lab Coat Dispenser which provides them access to a clean lab coat that is appropriate for the particular types of chemicals they are using, and costs students $26 each semester.
Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology
Train and engage students in preservation, research, interpretation and exhibition. Your gift will preserve the protection of the Department of Anthropology’s global collections and share illuminating and illustrative artifacts of Detroit’s local history for generations to come.
Urban Studies and Planning Student Internships
Provide opportunities for students to test-drive career options, observe and practice what they have learned in the classroom, and signal valuable experience to future employers. The Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP) will match funds to place two students in community-based internships in Winter 2021. This is our second year coordinating a formal internship program, and we hope that you can join us in supporting professional development for our students!
Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here.
