circle arrow Visionary Priorities


Flexible Field Study, Geology

This money would begin to convert the traditional Rocky Mountain-based, six-week field camp into a series of smaller field experiences based upon
current events and issues in geology.

Named Center for Combating Human Trafficking

This proposed endowment would support faculty research, assessment and data management, visioning for future programs, and capacity building. 

Audio Production Facility

The proposed laboratory in the Elliott School would advance students’ capabilities with media focusing on audio, and would build partnerships to advance relationships in the recording industry.
