UConn Gives is a 36-hour giving initiative, where you can celebrate your favorite aspects of the University through giving. Please consider support the Nugget Fund – and the NEW Department of Geosciences! The Nugget Fund helps to fund field courses (Taiwan, Bahamas, Rome, Western US), student field work and conference travel. By increasing this fund, we will be able to support these critical activities for our students. Visit www.givingday.uconn.edu for more information.
