Undergraduate Academic Affairs Fund for Excellence
Gifts to UAA’s Fund for Excellence are used to support UAA’s most pressing needs.
Your gift allows Vice Provost and Dean Ed Taylor to address emerging needs and to take advantage of new, unforeseen opportunities as they arise. The Fund for Excellence hones our competitive edge by providing the resources necessary to enhance our program offerings, attract top students, draw and retain top administrators, and fund vibrant extra-curricular programs in a way that state funding alone cannot.
In the past, the Fund for Excellence has supported additional student programming around the Common Book, campus-wide advising workshops, and special Teaching Academy programs to enhance faculty teaching and development. Dean Taylor plans to use the Fund for Excellence to expand support for these types of programs that build community and citizens, while leading the way in academic innovation.
