Alumni & Friends
Giving to English
Despite the continued challenge of these difficult economic times, you, our alumni and friends, have been incredibly generous this year.
YOU gave over $52,000 to our Strategic and Gift Funds. We use these gifts to enhance the classroom experience for our undergraduates, to support our graduate students, and to retain and recruit the exceptional faculty that make us one of the top English programs in the country.
YOU donated $11,000 to the New England Literature Program (NELP) to provide scholarships for students.
YOU gave more than $5,000 to the Bear River Writer’s Conference.
YOU continued to support the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) with more than $21,000 in donations.
YOU contributed an additional $10,000 for the Ralph Williams Excellence in Teaching Award fund.
You ARE the Michigan Difference.
No gift to the Department is too small, and each one contributes to maintaining the standard of excellence that is the Michigan Difference. We thank each one of you—both those who have already given and those who are considering doing so. For more information on giving, please see below:
