Giving Opportunities in the English Department
The English Department's fundraising priorities include funding for faculty research and speaker series.
- Funds for faculty research, particularly travel funding for conferences, workshops, and trips to archives. Research in English is relatively inexpensive compared with other disciplines, but external funding opportunities and start-up funds are much more limited.
- Endowments for outside speakers along the lines of the current Shakespeare Endowment.
- Professorships like the Stocker Professorship in Creative Writing and the Crowl Professorship.
