Support our Work and Join the Station1 Community

There are a variety of ways you can get involved and make a difference including: philanthropic gifts, pro bono advising, volunteering, hosting an event, and participation in Station1 higher education projects.

Philanthropic Gifts

With a philanthropic gift to Station1, you will have significant, meaningful, and immediate impact by providing deserving students with access to authentic, experiential, project-based learning and a strong foundation for a meaningful and productive career and life. In addition, in the longer term, your gift will enable Station1 to catalyze lasting and important changes in higher education. Join us on this exciting journey and play a crucial role in transforming higher education by making a donation today!

Philanthropists may choose to support a number of discrete areas including:

  • Summer@Station1 education, research, and internship program;
  • Station1 Fellowships to support individual student participation in the Summer@Station1 program (naming of fellowships is available);
  • Strategic higher education projects, for example:
    • Postsecondary finance: Building an affordable, sustainable postsecondary financial model green field through predictive quantitative analytics;
    • Blended learning: Deep integration of digital and physical spaces to enhance inquiry and research-based learning, collaboration and knowledge generation, community and global engagement, interdisciplinary perspective, student success, personal and professional development; and
    • Computer-assisted curriculum design: To enable the design of dynamically evolving, personalized and transdisciplinary curricula, to quantitatively and rapidly benchmark and compare curricula, to connect curricula to newly available real-time labor market data, to codify and better understand learning outcomes at multiple levels; and to more easily connect to digital educational resources and to support blended pedagogies.
