Great Conversation! Sponsorship Information

Your sponsorship provides valuable support to Friends University’s outstanding liberal arts education programs. This support translates into merit scholarships for students who are in the midst of their educational journey; for learning opportunities outside the classroom where they can gain first-hand experience through internships, research projects, and performance; and the perpetuation of our education programs for the working adult.

To become a sponsor, please contact Nancy Hinten, event director, at hinten@friends.edu.
