Today's students are tomorrow's leaders. Raising financial support for students is the Humphrey School's top fundraising priority.

Faculty Members

Teachers and researchers who can marry academic theory with practical application are the lifeblood of a professional school like the Humphrey School. Gifts ensure continued excellence through endowed chairs and professorships and opportunities for faculty development.

Research + Issues

Faculty and student research helps to develop and evaluate new policy and planning solutions to the challenges that vex our community. Together, researchers come up with new ways for nonprofit and public organizations solve problems more creatively and effectively. Contributions help propel this work.


As members of the public outreach arm of the University, Humphrey School students, faculty members, and researchers actively are involved with the local community, adding vibrancy through programming and engagement. Find out how you can contribute our community initiatives.


Designed by famed architect Leonard Parker and dedicated in 1986, the Humphrey Center is a hub of learning and engagement on the West Bank. Gifts toward capital improvements can make our building an even more valuable community resource.

Strategic Initiatives

Unrestricted funds allow Dean Eric Schwartz to take advantage of opportunities as they arise and allow him to make strategic investments to advance the Humphrey School and its programs.
