James C. Wyant College of Optical Sciences

 

Living Her Values at Work and Home

Edmund Optics maintains close ties with the James C. Wyant College of Optical Sciences as a donor and industrial affiliate, funding two scholarships and a study area. Mary Turner, principal engineer, says: "Working for an organization that puts so much emphasis on giving back really helps you see that you truly can help those around you."

Focused Investment in Optics

Jim Wyant took a leap of faith when he became an assistant professor at the University of Arizona. Now, 45 years later, the founding dean of the James C. Wyant College of Optical Sciences has made the largest gift for faculty support in university history. His family's gift for endowed chairs follows a $10 million scholarship gift made in 2013.
