Other Ways to Help

There are many different ways to help Humanities & Social Sciences outside of a monetary donation:


Provide internships and job opportunities

Internships and job opportunities are invaluable to students looking to begin their careers upon graduation. Let us know of any opportunities in your company or community that could benefit out students.


Volunteer your time

Your time is your most valuable asset. Offer to mentor a student, volunteer for a HSS committee or special project here on campus, or sign up to represent us at a recruiting fair or other event in your area.


Be an ambassador for HSS in your community

Help us spread the word about the many great things going on in HSS. Know a graduating senior? Tell them about us. Have some names in mind of potential donors or supporters? Talk to them yourself or pass the word along and let us do the work.
