Support Our College

Experience Making a Difference

Nearly 2,000 students in the College of Health and Human Services are making a DIFFERENCE every day in the classroom, in their field experiences and internships, conducting research with faculty and in their careers after graduation.

Our alumni and friends are making a difference by supporting the college – its students, programs and faculty research.

Your support advances the college and makes the DIFFERENCE between us being a good college and a great one. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed and planned gifts that provide lasting support for generations, any size gift to the College of Health and Human Services makes a difference in the following ways:

Enhances the quality of education by strengthening our academic programs, boosting the recruitment and retention of top-quality students, faculty, and staff, and enhancing our facilities and services. 

Ensures a BGSU education remains accessible to all regardless of financial limitations. With nearly 80% of our undergraduate students receiving some form of financial aid, your support is vital to their success both academically and professionally.

Bridges the gap between state support, tuition and the cost of educating a BGSU student. While BGSU is a public university, state funding now supports less than 25% of the cost of a BGSU education. Gifts to support student scholarships help defray the disparity between public support and the individual's expenses.

Inspires others to give. By making a gift to the College of Health and Human Services, you serve as a role model to corporations, foundations and other individuals, and demonstrate your belief in the power of your investment.
