Make a gift to the Physical Education Program
We deeply appreciate your generosity to the Physical Education Program. Physical Education provides a wide range of physical activity classes and lecture and laboratory courses in aquatics, martial arts, dance, and team and individual sports. Instruction is sequential over the 15 week semester allowing for course continuity, and improvement of skills and concepts. Students experience first-hand, the links between physical wellness, mental health, and academic achievement. They engage with each other in class regularly, encouraging multi-cultural learning and personal growth. Your gift can improve facilities and support academic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
The following funds have been established to benefit Physical Education:
Physical Education Program Fund
Gifts to the director's discretionary fund allow the program to maintain excellence in physical education (like aquatics, basketball, dance, fitness, marital arts, tennis, volleyball, and scientific diving), develop new wellness courses, and improve our historic Hearst Gymnasium.
The Sunni Bloland Lectureship in Dance
In honor of Sunni Bloland, who taught dance for 30 years at Berkeley, funds donated to this endowment will be used to provide discretionary support for a lecturer in dance. Sunni believes and has passionately lived out the power of dance to teach social skills and help form a healthy and whole human being. She says, “A person is not fully educated unless he or she can dance.”
M. Kathryn Scott Memorial Fund
With the M. Kathryn Scott Fund, the Scott family and Physical Education aim to establish an endowment in her memory. We hope that you will join us in celebrating Kathy and that you will consider making a gift toward a fund furthering the educational goals of students in Physical Education, and/or a project benefiting the historic Hearst Gymnasium.
