In 2007, we were able to establish an endowment fund that allows us to support the teaching and research activities of our students and faculty.
We use the interest generated from these funds to:
- repair and purchase equipment for our teaching laboratories.
- support the research and travel to meetings of our undergraduate and graduate students
- purchase materials and supplies for our greenhouse and our Media Prep Center
We have 1,001 needs each year, and for each $20 contribution, we will receive about $1 per year perpetually to be used to support our work. You can help us celebrate 100 years of science and science education in the Department of Microbiology and Plant Biology (formerly the Department of Botany and Microbiology) with your tax-deductible contribution to the University of Oklahoma Foundation. Your gift will help preserve the future of Microbiology and Plant Biology and provide important resources for students and faculty.
