Giving to the Department

Gifts to the Department enhance our ability to maintain vibrant undergraduate and graduate programs, to bring in speakers for seminars and colloquia, and to send our graduate students to conferences nationwide. If you would like to help us in these efforts by making a general contribution to the department, please visit the College of Arts and Sciences giving page, and select African American Studies from the pull down menu.
