You Make Us Great

In this first decade of the 21st century, Asian nations are poised to exert enormous influence on the world. Here at the University of Minnesota, the Department of Asian Languages & Literatures encourages critical understanding of the histories and cultures of Asia and their roles in the world.

Your tax-deductible contribution provides our students with encouragement and vital financial support. It gives our faculty resources to advance our knowledge of Asian languages, literatures, and cultures. It helps to maintain the department's distinguished reputation.

What Your Gift Can Do

Your generous support for the Department of Asian Languages & Literatures is more critical than ever in helping us attract and retain the very best scholars and students.

Your contribution allows us to ensure:

  • A distinguished faculty: creating endowed chairs and professorships and supporting interdisciplinary research centers and programs will help us recruit and retain outstanding faculty
  • Excellence and competitiveness of our graduate program: faculty choose institutions that attract the best graduate students. We need to ensure the excellence and competitiveness of our graduate programs so that we may compete for the best faculty and brightest students
  • A diverse and engaged undergraduate student body: although we are attracting better students than ever before, too many other outstanding students choose other institutions—often for financial reasons. Merit and need-based scholarships are needed to recruit many outstanding students

To remain competitive, we need your support for graduate student fellowships and faculty research funds. We have several funds that may interest you:

Sustaining the excellence of the Department of Asian Languages & Literatures is critical to the University, our local community, and the world. Your gift can help support the next generation of leaders and thinkers.
