Laney Graduate School

Shaping leaders in service to the global good, the James T. Laney School of Graduate Studies prepares a diverse, inclusive student body for success through scholarship, research, teaching, and programming. Laney cultivates problem-solvers who funnel their passions and abilities into business, research, and more. (And, yes: Laney grows future professors, too.) Our graduates are everywhere, as global citizens and top competitors in an international job market.

From student-centric diversity efforts to professional development, each fund helps students flourish at Laney . . . and beyond. 

During 2O36 Giving Week, we are highlighting the following giving opportunities: 

  • The Laney Graduate School Fund for Excellence supports strategic priorities identified by the Dean that address immediate needs of the school, including student hardship funds and professional development.  
  • The Laney Graduate School Diversity Gift Fund provides financial resources to enhance student-centric diversity efforts at Laney.
  • The Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) Program provides much needed financial support to recruit and retain top-tier MDP students, who work to address the most pressing challenges of our time in the face of global poverty, natural disasters, climate change, conflict and insecurity, and disease.
  • Graduate School Fellowship Support Fund ensures that all students of our community enjoy an enriching university experience by providing stipend support. 

Give today! Your donation to Laney Graduate School helps our students create a better world.
