Opportunities to Support the Department of History
Our sincere thanks to the many alumni and friends who have generously supported the Department of History. Private gifts are critical to ensuring that the department maintains its stature as one of the nation’s preeminent history programs. Your donations help us attract top faculty and graduate students, support promising undergraduate majors, and host a stimulating series of lectures, symposia and other scholarly activities. Gifts of any size are most welcome and gratefully received. All our funds welcome contributions and bequests from alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations.
Our three giving societies recognize leadership donors who make annual gifts at varying tiers to the Department of History. Society members may receive invitations to on-campus or local events, recognition as a Society member in the yearly newsletter, and a copy of ARCHIVE, the Department’s undergraduate history journal.
