You Make Us Great
The Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies offers courses and degree programs to many University of Minnesota undergraduate and graduate students every year. Gifts to the department help us provide scholarship support, fund student travel abroad, bring in distinguished speakers from around the country, and much more.
What Your Gift Can Do
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.
