Giving Tuesday Nov. 29, 2022

On this Giving Tuesday, we hope you will join us in making a gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund. Our ambition aims to support cutting-edge research, to innovate and transform the Humanities, and to advance our PhD programs to national pre-eminence through cross-disciplinary hiring initiatives, joint faculty appointments, co-taught courses that conjoin disciplines, and a new infrastructure of support for collaborative research. And your gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund — at any level — allows us to break new ground, respond quickly to student needs, and put your support to work where the impact will be greatest.
