For more than a century, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences has been the beating heart of the University of Illinois. It provides bright young minds with an education that's as focused as it is diverse.
Giving to LAS
Our research leads to groundbreaking discoveries in the lab. And, our world-class faculty members are using literature and languages to understand historical and current events and peoples. In all our work, we're finding solutions to the world's greatest challenges. Working together, our people, programs, and facilities make the College of LAS altogether amazing.
With Illinois, our most ambitious philanthropic campaign
The support of alumni and friends launches our students, faculty, and alumni to remarkable success. Together, we can ensure that the College of LAS remains a place where progress and innovation flourish. We're doing so as a part of the University of Illinois' most ambitious philanthropic campaign, With Illinois.
Donor support allows us to:
- Attract and empower top students, regardless of their financial means, through our Lincoln Scholars Initiative
- Recruit and retain leading faculty members
- Inspire and equip our students by providing access to cutting-edge technology and facilities
- Help students maximize their time on campus and prepare for what comes next through our Life + Career Design initiative
- Support students navigating challenging times through the College of LAS Emergency Fund
Our goal is to raise $200 million during our With Illinois campaign. With the support of generous donors, we're more than three-quarters there.
