Giving

Our first hope is that friends and alumni of the IS Program will consider giving some of your time, as a mentor to current IS majors and minors who are always eager for advice and support as they consider internships, jobs, fellowships, and graduate programs. To that end, please consider joining BC's new mentoring site, Eagle Exchange, joining our IS Program LinkedIn group, and/or letting IS Program director Erik Owens know if you'd be willing to speak groups of students when you're back in the Boston area.  

Of course, financial gifts are also crucial to the success of our program, and we welcome conversations about general or specific support for ongoing or new initiatives in the IS Program. Gifts to our Discretionary Fund will support programs such as career mentoring events and services; student research, retreats, prizes, and academic travel; academic lectures and workshops; faculty research; and special projects such as the Global Engagement Portal, the Global Citizenships Project, and the IS Summit retreat.  We welcome your ideas for additional initiatives.

We invite you to make a contributing using the button below, or contact Professor Erik Owens, Director of International Studies (erik.owens@bc.edu or 617-552-1861) to talk about giving opportunities. Thank you!
