Health Career Opportunities Program (HCOP)

How can you increase the number and diversity of health care professionals in the Central Valley? HCOP is dedicated to serving students from economically-and/or educationally-disadvantaged backgrounds that have an interest in pursuing a career in the health and allied health professions. The Central Valley has struggled for years to attract doctors, with physician-to-resident ratios well below what medical experts say is needed for adequate healthcare. Graduates of this program attend prestigious health professional schools and many return to serve in the Central Valley.

Lab Renovations 

Make an investment that will support Bulldogs tackling the scientific and technical problems facing our communities. Investment in lab renovations – including virtual reality tools – will ensure every student studying a science discipline participates in hands-on research in their academic studies. With these upgrades, our teaching laboratories will help facilitate research projects that incorporate the latest technology while creating innovative spaces that promote collaboration among students and instructors.

Course Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs)

CUREs is an investment that brings original research experiences into the classroom to effectively train, retain, and increase the number of STEM majors at Fresno State. Faculty and students select a vital research question or complex real-world problem and then conduct experiments and analyses as an integral part of their study. Your support will provide the necessary funds and supplies so that first-year students experience authentic scientific research and are then able to present their results at regional and national meetings.

Downing Planetarium

The Downing Planetarium at Fresno State shares the wonders of the universe with our community, offering programs on a daily basis throughout the year. The planetarium specializes in field trips for children from schools throughout the Central Valley, offering four public programs on a monthly basis and hosting several special events throughout the year. In its nearly 20-year history, thousands of children have visited the campus for the very first time to see the planetarium. Many of these students have gone on to attend Fresno State as first generation college students. Funds from these donations will provide additional planetarium programs as well as improvements to the projector system to provide a high quality experience for visitors, inspiring the next generation of scientists and explorers.
