Giving

Thank you for considering a gift to the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Each year our friends and alumni generously support the School and its programs. Your gift can provide financial support to students, help us continue to explore advancements in teaching and learning, and advance our creative efforts and research in serving the citizens of Maryland and beyond. A gift helps us achieve the excellence we have set as our goal in ways like those listed here:

 

  • Your gift helps recruit the best and the brightest students to our degree programs. As the cost of higher education increases, so does our need to support those less fortunate with achieving their professional education and launching their careers. Gifts for scholarships, leadership and lecturers all work to prepare our students to become tomorrow's leaders.


  • Your gift will help us make learning experiential and action-oriented. Our educational programs support outreach efforts like the Partnership for Action Learning for Sustainability (PALS), the Urban Land Institute’s national competition, internship programs and design studios where students are learning to address today's problems.


  • Your gift can advance the knowledge being delivered to the classroom. Professorships and Endowed Chairs will help us attract the very best faculty and aid their search for new knowledge and creative ideas.

 

 

Your gift not only helps individual students and advances the School but it adds value to your own degree. Your gift makes the School stronger and helps us achieve the recognition and national reputation that we deserve.

This Year's Priority Gifts

 The School has identified this need for gifts:

 

 

Dean’s Leadership Fund

For students, leadership training involves opportunities to interact with national leaders, develop workshops and symposia on leadership and participate in leadership events and training opportunities. For faculty, leadership funds will provide support that will allow faculty to enhance their leadership role in the professions they serve. Support of this fund will allow the School of Architecture and its programs to enhance our tradition.
