Alumni and Advancement
If you would like to make a contribution to the Department of Biology, you can visit the University Advancement website secure online giving form. Our current goals are: (1) raise funds toward the new Terry West scholarship, in honor of retiring Biology Graduate Director Dr. Terry West, and intended to be used to recruit new graduate students; (2) raise funds toward the new Everett Simpson scholarship, honoring retired distinguished faculty member Dr. Everett Simpson and supporting meritorious undergraduates; (3) continue to support "Biology Advancement Council Next Step Scholarships" to help us recruit, retain and support the best PhD, MS and BS students—so our students and our program can make the next step in excellence.
