The fundamental nature of public higher education has
changed. In recent years, funding from the state and federal governments has
declined significantly. At the same time, to permit access for all qualified
students, the university has worked diligently to limit tuition increases.
In today’s environment, the importance of private gifts from
individuals, foundations, and corporations is critical to the success of our
students and faculty.
With current funds already dedicated to sustain ongoing
work, any increases in the quality and quantity of our programs must come from
the private sector.
We look forward to partnering with our many friends and
alumni to advance and ensure the quality of a Northern Arizona University
degree in social and behavioral sciences. We appreciate your enthusiasm and
generosity in advancing that mission.
