Friends of the Library 

Your unrestricted gift to the Friends of the Library will help us close the gap between our annual operating budget and the growing list of resources and services that our students need most.  This includes such initiatives as our Library Prize for Undergraduate Research, the popular Library Speaker series, and upgrades to the study space.

Schurz Library Endowment

Much of a library’s reputation is based upon the number and variety of publications and materials that are acquired, made available, and preserved for its users.  For a library serving researchers, along with students who are teachers in training, future nurses, and upcoming accountants, our collections are critical.   The Schurz Library Endowment provides funds to purchase books and other vital materials for our collections.
