Why Give to UDC?

Support UDC and make a difference!

The University of the District of Columbia system, including the flagship four-year institution and the new Community College, offers more than 70 academic programs that range from the Associate degree to the Master’s degree. We also offer numerous certificate programs that assist residents of the District of Columbia in improving their lives. These programs as well as an abundant population of bright students and dedicated faculty make UDC not only unique but also critically important to the District and the region. Private funding assists the university in fulfilling its mission of providing quality, affordable, and accessible education to students in Washington, DC and beyond. Your support is critical to our success!
