Contributions to the Dean's Fund are used immediately to finance the cost of events, programs, giveaways, professional development, technology purchases, and more. Your gift provides the support needed to meet the ongoing needs of students and faculty to enhance their learning experience and engagement with the King Library.
Library Research Scholars Program
Contributions to this fund financially support research scholars. Using King Library's collection, each student accepted into this program will be given a paid opportunity to conduct original research in the library on an hourly basis, while participating in a year-long program.
Endowments are created with a gift of $50,000 and the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining the purpose of the endowment. Gifts under $50,000 are considered pre-endowments, which need to be built up to a minimum balance of $50,000 within five years of being established to become a permanent endowment. Books acquired under each endowment will bear specially designed, individual bookplates created in consultation with the donor.
