Department of English Advisory Board member Wayne Gisslen made Give to the Max Day 2018, on November 15, an outstanding one by matching donations to English up to $5,000. An 1968 graduate, Gisslen is the author of a series of cookbooks that have been the field's leading professional textbooks for 35 years.

This match was an incredible opportunity, and our alums and friends rose to the challenge with $5,220 in gifts, for a total of $10,220 GTMD contributions. We are so grateful.

These gifts will go directly toward supporting the English Department: our undergraduates, our graduate students, and our faculty. 

Although GTMD is over until 2019, you can still give online here.

We thank Wayne and all our donors for their kindness and generosity in supporting English.
