Why give?

Monica Gandhi BS'91
Growing up in Utah taught me a great deal and my time at the University of Utah was refreshing, eye-opening, formative and life-changing. The world has always struggled with disparities and vulnerable populations, such as those living with poverty or with stigma, are more prone to infection and poor health outcomes.

Great education comes with great privilege.  It is our duty as graduates of the College of Science at the University of Utah to go out in the world to attempt to right these disparities, combat the stigma and carry the ideals of our rigorous scientific education forth.
