Dr. Scott Collins

Dear Alumni,

Our alumni are very important to us. You are our success stories and we trust you enjoyed and appreciated the time you spent with SIU Carbondale and the education you received here.

Many of you have in turn become partners with us in helping assure our students of today and tomorrow receive a quality education. Your support is vital in a number of areas. 

By providing internship opportunities you give our students critical hands-on learning experiences.  Endowed scholarships provide our students valuable financial assistance to complete their degrees.  Unrestricted support is crucial as well as it allows our Dean, Department Chairs and Directors to use the donations to fund special projects and learning experiences that may not otherwise be possible.

We appreciate you and the confidence in our college that your support demonstrates.  If you would like more information about how you can help us continue to provide a high-quality education for the allied health professionals of tomorrow, we would love to hear from you.

On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, we say, “Thank you!”


Kevin Scott Collins
Dean, College of Health and Human Sciences

How can I help?

You play a vital role in the success of our current and future students. By creating an endowed scholarship, you can help those with limited resources obtain a quality education. Offering on-the-job learning to students through our Internship Program is another important way to have a hand in creating Saluki success stories. Should you have any questions, please contact Steph Taylor, Director of Development., or call (618)-453-4975.
