The Crimson Laureate Society is a new group dedicated to promoting and advancing science and mathematics at the University of Utah.  Members advocate for science in the community, make their voices heard, and have access to exclusive benefits and recognition opportunities.

If you are passionate about biology, the Crimson Laureate Society is a unique opportunity to share this passion with like-minded individuals and show your dedication to upholding the value that biological science provides to our local, national, and global communities.

Your gift of $100 or more to the Department of Biology will grant you full membership in the Crimson Laureate Society this year, while your contribution will serve to fortify the future of biology education and research at the University of Utah.
