$1.25 Million Legacy Gift Boosts UC San Diego’s Department of Theatre and Dance

Teachers often inspire students, but students can move teachers, too. Such was the case during a recent visit to UC San Diego’s Department of Theatre and Dance by long-time educator and arts supporter Lois Chant.

Her $1.25 million legacy gift will boost the department’s efforts to continue its top-ranked theater training program. With an even distribution to occur between the Lois Chant Endowed Scholarship Fund in support of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships in Theatre and Dance and the Theatre & Dance Student Productions Endowment, the return on the gift will help continue the valuable training experience theater students need, including funding actual productions and associated program expenses.

“I was most touched by the students; they were so enthusiastic about the program at the university,” noted Chant, whose vision for the significant planned gift is to bring stronger students into the arts.
