    Want to help?

    Falk College is most grateful for contributions at all levels. Gifts are our most powerful tool to help students in need, develop programs of excellence, and support outstanding faculty within the department of Human Development and Family Science (HDFS). If you are an alumni of our Falk College family, you have an open invitation to come back to SU, and more specifically to Falk College. Maybe you’d like to give back by presenting a lecture in your field of expertise to current students. Or perhaps you could mentor a student by sharing your experiences to help them make life-changing decisions. We always welcome financial support, but equally appreciate the value a personal story our alumni can offer to shape the SU experience for our future alums.
