Support Math and Science at Belmont Abbey
Math and Natural Science
Mathematics and Science promote abstract reasoning and quantitative literacy, preparing students to encounter and engage with complex reality.
This Founders’ Day, you can help expand undergraduate research opportunities for science majors.
Donor generosity enabled our newly renovated science building to add first floor biochemistry and chemistry labs, while transforming existing second-floor chemistry labs into physics labs and classroom space. These renovations improve students’ educational experience and empower faculty members in all of our science programs.
Thanks to last year’s Founders’ Day Challenge we were able to purchase additional research equipment, fund summer undergraduate research programs, bring in guest lecturers, and allow students and faculty to attend the Southeast Section of the Mathematical Association of America meeting.
When you make a gift today, you can help provide the necessary support to:
- Send students to conferences and fund travel opportunities.
- Bring in further dynamic speakers
- Provide academic scholarships
- Improve classroom facilities, especially by purchasing additional whiteboards.
- Fund undergraduate research, equipment, materials and stipends.
Your gift of any amount will raise the next generation of ethically-minded doctors, nurses, chemists, biologists, and physicists!
And, as a special thank you for a donation of $25 or more during the Founders’ Day Challenge, we will send you a Tiny Saint Benedict keychain as well as a bracelet featuring Saint Benedict’s medal.
Make a Gift to the Math and Science Department Today!
“The Belmont Abbey math department provided me with a quality education that prepared me for graduate school and employment. The high levels of support I received from my professors led to me getting a graduate assistant position at UNC Charlotte, and the high level of rigor of the classes allowed me to be successful in attaining my Ph. D. When I was hired by a national lab after graduation, my broad education gave me the critical thinking skills to problem solve and the leadership skills to head several projects. I am grateful to my math professors at Belmont Abbey for helping me to reach my full potential.”

“My experiences with Biology at the Abbey have more than prepared me for the rigors of Medical School. In my classes I find that I can often grasp a basic science concept and move directly into clinical applications and more advanced principles thanks to the depth and breadth of topics covered in my four years with Abbey Biology.”
