The school’s funding priorities fall into three general categories: increase innovative technology, advance student and faculty success, and support cutting-edge research.

Technology Endowment for Hinds Hall (TECHH)

TECHH raises monies for the new home of the School of Information Studies in Hinds Hall to ensure it has the cutting-edge equipment and technology infrastructure needed to propel the school to the next level of excellence and shape the future of the information age for many years to come.

What we teach, learn, and research in the School of Information Studies is in large part informed by the technology we use, the infrastructure that supports the use of this technology, and the ‘virtual’ collaboration that exists between the school and its world-wide partners. The Technology Endowment Campaign for Hinds Hall (TECHH) complements the building renovation by raising funds to guarantee that our leading programs will always be forward looking and have the cutting-edge technology and infrastructure they deserve.

The iSchool currently has several naming opportunities available in Hinds Hall. Six figure gifts and higher can also be counted toward the Raymond von Dran Innovation and Disruptive Entrepreneurship Accelerator (IDEA).

Endowed chairs and professorships

These positions will help us attract and retain internationally renowned scholars and scientists who are leaders in the field of information studies. We seek to establish endowed chairs and professorships in information exploitation, digital literacy, information assurance, multimedia and publishing, librarianship, and telecommunications.

Graduate scholarships and fellowships

These help us compete for the best graduate students both here and abroad. The School of Information Studies makes it possible for students of talent and promise to pursue their master’s and doctoral degrees at Syracuse University by offering comprehensive financial aid packages in the form of distinguished graduate fellowships, graduate fellowships, and graduate scholarships.

Raymond F. von Dran School of Information Studies Fund

Established in honor of former dean the late Raymond F. von Dran, we have built a large enough endowment to name the Syracuse Student Start-up Accelerator after one of its finest leaders.

Research and development centers

The research labs and centers in the School of Information Studies have achieved remarkable distinction, thereby raising our nation and international profiles. There are several research centers provide an important focus for both faculty and student research that advances the information field and serves the public good.
