Thank you for your interest in the Department of Gender and Race Studies. The generous support and continued involvement of our alumni and friends allows us to sustain a high level of quality in our teaching and research.

Charitable gifts support several key initiatives in our department:

  • Sponsorship of students and faculty members for conventions and conferences
  • Support for the activities of our student organizations
  • Scholarships for our outstanding students

We hope to grow our program and increase financial assistance to students over the next several years- and to do that, we need continued involvement from our alumni and friends.

Please consider making a gift to the Department of Gender and Race Studies today!
