The Power of Philanthropy
Support the Things You Love to Power Our Success
The Johnson-Lisk Family Fund for the EcoStation was established in honor of former Chancellor Jacqueline R. Johnson and supports programming, use, and care of the EcoStation, Morris's outdoor learning venue located near Ashby. With more than 140 acres containing a variety of features—ponds, wetlands, native and reclaimed prairie, and forest areas—the EcoStation offers opportunities for research and creative work to the entire campus community.
Alumni support makes Morris's liberal arts education—rigorous and characterized by a high level of scholarly interaction between students and faculty—accessible. Fifty-seven percent of our students participate in undergraduate research or creative production, one in five is involved in varsity athletics, 46 percent study abroad (the national average is 21), and 95 percent are employed or engaged in advanced education within a year of graduation. When you make a gift in support of deserving and talented students or wide-ranging and innovative scholarly activities, you are part of our success at Morris. Thank you.
