Your gift makes a difference

Even a small gift to the department of Health Policy & Administration can have a very large impact. You can:

  • Invest in students’ futures. Help meet their financial needs as they pursue a graduate education in Health Policy and Administration. Fund a scholarship, graduate fellowship, or travel expenses to an important conference, such as the ACHE Congress on Healthcare Leadership.
  • Create a platform for the exchange of critical information. Sponsor a keynote speaker or an annual lecture series about the trends and directions in the industry, including economic forecasts and outlooks.
  • Contribute to world-class research and teaching. Aid us in the retention and recruitment of outstanding faculty.
  • Extend the geographic reach of the Program. Help us reach out to alumni and others who would benefit from the knowledge and expertise of HPA’s world-class faculty through the HPA Seminar Series.
