|Supporting Science at Rensselaer
When you make a gift to Science at Rensselaer, you join with others in playing a vital role in supporting our students, faculty, facilities, and research.
“The School of Science’s fundamental mission is to drive the interdisciplinary frontiers of science through research and education. We seek to advance the frontiers of knowledge in the basic and applied sciences; to provide access to a rich educational experience that will motivate and enable all of our students to seek the highest levels of intellectual achievement and personal growth, and to use our knowledge, discoveries, and inventions to change the world.
Of course all of this takes resources and we rely on the help of our alumni and friends to achieve these goals. If you have supported the School in the past, thank you. If you are considering making your first gift, I encourage you to look around our website and see, first hand, the ground breaking work of our faculty and students that is having an immediate impact on the world around us. Once you do, I’m certain that you’ll agree that Science at Rensselaer is worthy of your investment.”
Dr. Laurie Leshin, Dean
