Our Supporters

Thank you to our supporters

Students walk in front of the O'Neill building on a sunny day.

We thank our generous community of supporters—faculty and staff, alumni, students, and interested community members—who contribute so much to the Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs. We are grateful for those who give generously to advance public and environmental scholarship and to transform the lives of others.

"The research that's done at [the O’Neill School] is important, but it's really the people who make the place thrive.  We're excited to be able to invest in young faculty, because we know the future of [the School] is in their hands."

"People from [the O’Neill School] care passionately about things other than themselves and give to something bigger than themselves."

School renamed for distinguished alumnus Paul H. O’Neill


My hope is that the school remains a place of excellence where future leaders can combine passion with action and develop the confidence they need to engage with society's greatest challenges and opportunities.
