School of Physical Sciences

This Giving Day support the School of Physical Sciences Dean’s Excellence Fund

The School of Physical Sciences is so much more than a robust academic unit. Our aim is to deliver scientific breakthroughs that reshape our understanding of the physical world and provide solutions to the most profound problems of our age. The school achieves this by asking hard questions; setting inspiring, visionary goals; and driving interdisciplinary research to chart new territory.

We are advancing humanity through a deeper understanding of the physical science that governs the world. Our flagship projects not only directly address some of today’s most fundamental and existential problems, but also strive for their impactful applied solutions.

The Future of Energy and the Environment

We are dedicated to developing scalable solutions for the problem of climate change. We are home to the nation’s first Department of Earth System Science, established to quantify changes to our environment and discover ways we can adapt.

The Future of Fundamental Science

The most exciting frontiers of scientific understanding lie at opposite extremes of size: the microscopic realm of quantum mechanics and macroscopic realm of the galaxy and the universe itself.

The Future of Health

Mathematics, physics, and chemistry provide invaluable 21st-century biomedical tools that allow us to comprehend biology at the most fundamental level and to treat disease with new technologies and a deeper physical understanding than ever before.

The Future of Quantum Science

The next technological revolution will be driven by quantum science. Our ability to process information, design drugs, transport energy, and invent new materials will be transformed as we increase our understanding of the quantum world.

In line with these goals, this Giving Day, we are seeking your support for our Physical Sciences Dean’s Excellence Fund. Your generosity will support the school’s most immediate and highest priorities including student and faculty research, sponsored departmental lectures, and public outreach and engagement initiatives. Our Dean’s Excellence Fund allows us to respond to the school’s emerging needs in a flexible way to immediately enhance the education experience for our students by bolstering our programs, faculty and facilities.

Our alumni, supporters, and friends are at the heart of everything we do as so many of our initiatives would go unfulfilled without your generosity. For that we are immensely grateful. With your support, we can impact our community in a lasting way and welcome your giving at any level.
