Support for Faculty

There is no question our faculty is stellar. From Nobel laureates and MacArthur winners to Fulbright and Guggenheim fellows, Social Sciences is home to an incredible array of scholars. Scholars whose impact extends beyond the classroom to research and outreach that improves our world.

But our ability to recruit and retain talented faculty is challenged by an ever-shrinking budget. Currently, less than seven percent of the university’s total revenues come from the State of California funds for education. Private support is critical to sustaining the quality of our faculty. Your gifts help keep us competitive and ensure our best minds stay right here, where they can continue to provide high-caliber teaching and research that matters to society.

Whether you choose to invest in an endowed chair, a research area or specific study, or help underwrite a professor’s program, rest assured your gift makes a difference. To all of us.
