One Vision. One Mission. Students First.
Gifts of every size move the University forward.
Encourage Stockton’s best and brightest as they critically appraise different aspects of human behavior and relationships at individual, societal and cultural levels. Gifts to the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences not only support students in their examination of human dynamics to better understand each other, but also the Stockton Center on Successful Aging, Child Welfare Education Institute, Washington Internship Program and the Stockton CSI summer residential experience. The following priorities will be supported through Ospreys Give 2019:
Childhood Studies — gifts support the Childhood Studies minor, which involves the study of children and adolescents using a multidisciplinary approach. This program is an inquiry into childhood and adolescence from the perspectives of the behavioral sciences, social sciences and humanities.
- Dean's Excellence Fund — under the Dean’s guidance, this fund allocates to areas of priority and need within the School of Social & Behavioral Sciences.
Gerontology — gifts support the Gerontology minor, housed in the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and its affiliation with the Stockton Center on Successful Aging. The minor, designated as a Program of Merit by the Association of Gerontology in Higher Education, offers students an interdisciplinary and multidimensional look at the process of aging.
