Support Us

The generous support of our alumni and friends has contributed to our ability to attract outstanding students. Your support has allowed the Department of English to offer special scholarships to students, as well as to provide experiential learning opportunities and support Departmental programming. These resources strengthen the educational experience we are able to provide to our students.

Your generosity, whether it's the renewal of your support or the decision to give for the first time, allows us to do what we do best - innovative, creative research and teaching. We’re most grateful for your contributions.
