The Humanities Center's Annual Fund is intended to vitalize humanities research and forward the most urgent needs and initiatives of the Center. Gifts to this fund are indispensable to enabling the Center to bring the humanities into contact with other fields such as the arts and the environment, and to provide opportunities to promote discussion about the role of the humanities in our contemporary world.
Some examples of the kinds of initiatives and programs a gift to the Annual Fund will help to sustain are:
- Manuscript review workshops for untenured, assistant professors
- Dissertation-writing workshops
- Undergraduate fellowships for seniors writing their theses
- Cross-campus collaborations and events.
