Give to Support Colleges and Schools

College of Arts & Sciences 

Support from the University’s friends and alumni is crucially important in helping the University initiate new projects while carrying out its mission of affordably educating students. A gift to the College of Arts & Sciences affects the entire Webster community; students from all five Schools and Colleges take a variety of general education and elective courses from the College. Donations to the University support a wide variety of projects and initiatives, including: scholarships and financial aid to support students' participation in Webster's international opportunities, projects that enhance our faculty's teaching skills and academic expertise and facilities construction and improvement. In addition, unrestricted gifts provide flexible resources to meet the University's areas of greatest need.

George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology

With a network of more than 100,000 Walker School of Business & Technology alumni working in more than 100 countries, our graduates are shaping the future of business, education, communication, government, science, technology and the arts.
