About the Marshall College Innovation Fund

Marshall College depends on the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends to support the activities and programs that have made the college a special place for generations of UC San Diego students.  We rely on gifts to maintain and strengthen our student’s quality of education at UC San Diego—both inside and outside of the classroom—as well as the overall college experience. Our college has a long history of bringing distinguished guests to campus for both formal and personal interaction with our students. Guests include; two Nobel laureates, Pulitzer winners, Oscar nominated film directors, award winning performers, and iconic keynote speakers to help broaden our students’ perspectives. Marshall College believes that dynamic learning outside of the classroom and giving back to our community is essential to our student’s education.

The following are a few examples of the ways in which your gift impacts our students’ experience:

  • Student Life - Cultural Celebration, MarshallPalooza, and a host of other social and cultural opportunities
  • Support student organizations such as; Student Council, Judicial Board, Leadership Committee, Marshall College Television (TMTV), and Marshall College Activities Committee
  • Leadership programs – Students gain professional skills that will serve them now and in their future careers
  • Tutoring and mentoring services – Access to academic support helps to ensure our students excel in their courses
  • Community Programs – Public service projects allow students to apply their skills and knowledge to give back to the community. The Partnership School Program allows students to go into inner city schools and work with historically under-served communities for hands on experience
  • Art and cultural activities – Award-winning arts performances, famed keynote speakers, public art installations, and cultural celebrations help to broaden our students’ perspectives 

UC San Diego is recognized as one of the top 10 public universities in the nation. However, with the decline in funding from the state of California, support from donors like you is more important than ever to ensure that our students receive an outstanding and well-rounded education.
