Robert Copeland and Illinois Quad in Fall 

Your gift makes memories matter

As the first African American associate dean for student academic affairs in LAS, the late Robert Copeland worked to keep dreams intact even when they seemed unlikely.

A gift to the college in his name by his wife, Elaine, helps high-achieving students with financial need attend Illinois through the Lincoln Scholars Initiative, and provides assistance to students who don’t have enough money to register for the upcoming term through the Robert M. Copeland Undergraduate Assistance Fund. 

Education helps dreams become reality. Join with us, With Illinois, and together we can propel bright minds with the power of an outstanding liberal arts and sciences education.
