Support Our Mission
What sets FSP apart from other universities?
In a word, innovation.
Innovation begins with the way we approach the teacher-student relationship. Many colleges boast prestigious, but distant, faculty members. Our students actually know their world-renowned professors. In addition to being leaders in the sciences and humanities, FSP professors are commited to mentoring their students by including them in all kinds of experiments, lab research, and field work.
At FSP, learning isn’t limited to sitting in a classroom and taking notes. Our students take that knowledge and apply it in the real world by doing their own seismic readings, photography, wildlife studies, social work and more. Why is this important? Because success in the job market, whether you wind up in business, zoology or any field in between, requires strong entrepreneurial and critical thinking skills.
Those skills aren't easily honed by sitting in a lecture hall. Our emphasis on combining classroom learning with hands-on experience, help's our students gain those critical skills. It’s an innovative approach to education that yields results. It’s also something rarely found at an undergraduate school. And it's your generosity that makes this happen. No matter what you choose to support — or how much you choose to support it — you can be sure that your gift will make a difference.
