Giving to the College

Featured Programs and Initiatives

The links in the left column provide provide detailed information regarding current programs and initiatives, as well as how you can become involved. Please check back often for updates.

Areas of Support for the College of Arts and Humanities Include:

Student Support

Our students today come from working and non-traditional backgrounds. Over fifty percent of them work full time to support themselves and their families while attending college.  The remaining fifty percent work part time sometimes as much as 30 hours per week. They bring to the classroom a level of maturity and determination that is highly valued. At the same time they could truly benefit from scholarship funds to reduce their number of work hours and give them time to focus on their studies. 

Faculty Support

Endowed Chairs and Professorships will continue to enable the College of Arts and Humanities to recruit and retain scholars whose leadership enhances the College’s visibility and its ability to attract outstanding students to its programs.  Endowment assures that resources will be in place to achieve these ends in perpetuity. 

Technology Support

Support for on-going technology upgrades will allow students to enter into the working world with skill sets that are relevant to technological advances. 

Program Support

The College of Arts and Humanities at California State University, Fresno would like to increase the number of regional, national and internationally known scholars and artists that share their knowledge and work with our students. Visiting Guest Artists, Lecturers and Scholars give students exposure to a wide range of styles and approaches as well as introduce them to influential professionals in their field.
