Give to English


English Department Fund

Your donation allows us to keep up the programs and services that enrich our students’ experience of literature and extend it beyond the formal classroom setting. For example, money from donors like you allows us to build the collection of books in our department library, to bring poets and other writers to campus for readings, to sponsor lectures by visiting scholars, to help fund graduate-student travel to conferences, libraries, and archives. Your support also allows the English Undergraduate and Graduate Associations to maintain their activities, in which faculty and students share their interests outside of the classroom in informal conversations, and it gives us the opportunity to provide new technologies for writing, research, and collegial collaboration. If you wish to contribute for general departmental use, please give to:
