Your generous support helps us maintain and develop a vibrant intellectual environment that attracts both undergraduate and graduate students. Your gift makes it possible for us to invite internationally renowned scholars, writers and artists; it helps us to retain first-rate students and to offer two excellent language programs in German and Russian. Scholarships, fellowships, innovative teaching methodology and technology can also be enhanced by your gift. You can always specify how your funds should be utilized within the department.
