For Students, Faculty, and Staff: MyU One Stop


What can your gift do?

Your generous support of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction is more critical than ever, helping us retain the very best scholars and students.

Gifts for undergraduate scholarships help attract and retain promising students while easing the burden of rising tuition. Support for graduate fellowships enables the Department to compete nationally and internationally for top graduate students, enhancing our research.

Your tax-deductible donation helps us attract and retain the very best scholars and students even as state funding declines. It gives our faculty resources for enlarging knowledge and understanding in areas of Curriculum and Instruction research.
