Learn more about the four Rosenstiel pillars

Driving our commitment and campaign fundraising are our four imperatives: saving lives, feeding the world, protecting our resources, and unlocking ocean secrets. These imperatives—or pillars—are supported by common platforms for research, teaching, and outreach, as well as by the endowed professorships and scholarships that are our most potent tools for recruiting and retaining world-class academic talent. Learn more below about how donations made to each respective fund can impact the Rosenstiel School.
