A Diversity of Giving

A message from our Chair, Jed Sparks

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology! Please explore our website for details and stories about EEB's exciting and innovative academic and research programs. The generosity of EEB friends and alumni like you provides our students with the funds essential for global and local field study and research.

From Florida to Patagonia, from Africa to Maine, and back again to the watersheds and forests of Central New York. Field experiences take undergraduates out of the classroom to have life-changing encounters with nature and provide them a pathway to field research and personal discovery. With ideas spawned in coursework, immersion in the field helps equip our students with the ability to synthesize research questions and provide answers that benefit both our curiosity and solve problems important to society.

Departmental funding coupled with donations jumpstart our graduate student research projects allowing exploration of a variety of organisms in an array of habitats around the world.
