The Dean’s Council Annual Fund

When you give to the College of Arts and Humanities on Day of Giving, unless otherwise specified, you will be helping to support the Dean’s Council Annual Fund. Those funds are then equally dispersed into two areas;

  1. Dean’s Council Scholarship Endowment: Provides scholarships and student assistance.
  2. Dean’s Discretionary Fund: Provides curriculum enrichment, research, and travel funding for students and faculty, technological and artistic support, as well as funding for the unique and unexpected needs of the College.

Here are just a few of the ways Dean’s Council funds have been used to directly impact students lives at Fresno State.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! This was an experience I had always dreamt of, and I feel so blessed to have been able to experience the villages of Ghana. I came back from this trip changed. It changed my perspective of western life for the better and allows me to understand the roots of my own diaspora a little bit better,” said Aly Honore.

“I’m very grateful for every opportunity Fresno State has given me,” Alejandra Tejeda said. “I come from a minority, and not a lot of minorities get opportunities like this or even think they are deserving of them. I would love to pave the way for the next generation.”
