Be part of history

One of the University’s architectural treasures, Pillsbury Hall stands as an enduring link to its nineteenth-century origins on the Minneapolis campus. It is now positioned for a transformation that will serve the needs of University of Minnesota students and faculty for generations to come.

Your gifts to the Pillsbury Hall Renovation campaign will revitalize the building so that students and faculty can reach the highest levels of teaching and learning.

Make a gift to Pillsbury Hall

When I was a child, stories were a form of escapism from poverty and loneliness. Now stories have become a place to preserve culture and a medium for humanizing marginalized voices; they remain a place of joy. If stories keep history and ourselves alive, they need a home, too.MFA candidate May Lee-Yang

Invest in English at Minnesota

The Department of English teaches 6,000 students a year, including nearly 500 majors and minors and 110 graduate students. A renovated Pillsbury Hall will provide those students with classrooms and study spaces designed for how they learn today: wired, active, experiential, and in community.
