Wanted: Fearless Collaborators

Big things are happening.  The gift you make today is instrumental in providing students with meaningful skills to thrive in a world that is adapting to technology, data overload and information management in new ways. We are committed to providing students with the most innovative and hands-on learning experience.  Give today to help shape future leaders and contribute to the next great discovery.

Why your support matters


We are committed to increasing diversity in computing and information -related fields. Today’s high-tech workforce does not reflect an increasingly diverse population. Our on-going diversity initiatives address this shortage of women and underrepresented minorities in computer and information science.

Innovation and Creativity

Our students and faculty stretch the boundaries of innovation and creativity. Thinking outside the box requires support from outside our halls. We seek to create the Modeling and Managing Complicated Systems Institute (momacs), a series of professional development opportunities, cutting-edge research, and state-of-the-art facilities for newly created curricula.  We recruit top-talent students, faculty and staff.


Scholarships allow us to continue to attract and retain top students in each of our offered programs. Help us continue the tradition of providing opportunities to deserving students by relieving tuition costs. 

Dean’s Fund – Flexibility for Today

A school that commits to staying ahead of the curve in the ever-changing landscape of technology needs flexible funding that can be allocated when and where it’s needed most.
