St. Mary’s University School of Law Dean’s Fund
The Dean’s Fund is made possible by gifts from our loyal alumni & friends. Each gift designated to this fund acts as a vote of confidence, demonstrating that our alumni and friends support the programs of the Law School. Through your gift to the Dean’s Fund you provide crucial support to a variety of important, but unfunded or underfunded needs at St. Mary’s Law including: student support, program enrichment, and campus improvements.
The Dean’s Fund gives the Law School financial resources independent of the school’s annual budget. Your support allows the dean to address the most pressing needs of the Law School, and to take advantage of opportunities for learning and service.
Your investment in the Dean’s Fund helps us continue our good work and ensure future successes for our students and the Law School. The following areas routinely benefit from gifts made to the Dean’s Fund.
- Student Support & Scholarships – Enabling our students to obtain hands-on, practical experience and allowing our graduates to pursue their career passions, unburdened by exorbitant amounts of debt;
- Program Development – Augment and solidify academic programs at the Law School;
- Student Activities – Supporting students’ academic activities, such as attending competitions and student-run activities, such as student orientation and the First Year Moot Court Competition;
- Other Unfunded Needs – Allowing Dean Sheppard to leverage every philanthropic dollar for maximum benefit by allocating funding where it’s most needed, when it’s most valuable, and how it’s most effective.
Your support plays an important role in bringing Dean Sheppard’s vision for St. Mary’s Law to fruition. Your support enables us to turn ideas into accomplishment.
