Sustain faculty excellence

The quality of our faculty directly impacts the quality of our graduates, which in turn directly impacts health in Indiana and beyond. You can ensure our students learn from extraordinary faculty by endowing faculty chairs and professorships. Faculty endowments and research support allow our faculty to explore, innovate, and create communities of learning that contribute to healthy people in healthy communities. Support at this level provides a legacy that will impact countless generations to come.

My research seeks to improve the health and quality of life of historically disadvantaged populations.

Enable student success

We are building an exciting and diverse program designed to solve myriad health problems in Indiana and around the world. From cancer research and disease prevention to exciting new areas like product stewardship and pharmacoepidemiology, we’re creating the public health training of the future. With your support, we can attract and retain exceptional students who are eager to learn and determined to make a difference.

While drive and determination are important components of graduate studies, the financial stability offered by the scholarship I received is key for students like me in completing our education.
