Giving to the Department of Classics
Your tax-deductible contribution to the Classics Department is a much appreciated pledge of support for our program. As state funding continues to diminish, private funds become ever more crucial to keeping our Department among the very best.
What Your Gift Can Do
Your generous support for the Department of Classics helps to meet a wide variety of financial needs. You enrich the study of Latin, Greek, and classical culture at the University by funding resources for students and by providing opportunities beyond the classroom, both academic and social.
Constantine Library of Classical Studies
The James S. Constantine Library continues to be the heart and soul of the Department. This well appointed reading room for Classics majors, graduate students, and faculty houses a collection of texts, commentaries, monographs, and reference works, as well as computers for general use. Only your donations keep the Constantine Library up to date.
Classical Events On Grounds
Your support brings leading classical scholars to the University to present lectures and seminars and to meet with students over lunch and at receptions. Donors to the Department support the activities of the Classics Club, the annual Classics Graduate Student Conference, and many other departmental events.
Travel and Research
Gifts enable Classics students to study abroad in the classical lands, conduct independent projects, and travel to present papers at professional meetings. Support for faculty research and travel to conferences and professional meetings is also sorely needed. In supporting such activities your gifts can contribute to the vitality and engagement of the Department.
How to Give
You may be assured that your donation to the Classics Fund will make an impact on the Department. All gifts are deeply appreciated.
If you wish your gift to be targeted to a particular purpose, please contact the Chair of the Department of Classics, Ivana Petrovic.
