If you have an interest in making a gift to directly support a program, prize, or lecture in the Department of Art History and Archaeology, please contact Elizabeth Childs, chair of Art History and Archaeology and Etta and Mark Steinberg Professor of Art History, or Cathy Sullivan Jannings, director of advancement for Arts & Sciences. General areas of support include, but are not limited to:
- Support a current major or minor by purchasing their textbooks for a single class; help a scholarship student make their grant stretch to cover the real costs of attendance!
- Support a lecture in an area of your interest—one lecture, or endow an annual series.
- Support a field trip for majors and/or graduate students to the museums and archives of a leading art center for a day or weekend, such as to Chicago or Washington.
- Support undergraduate study abroad, or graduate student research over the summer.
- Create or support a prize for majors or graduate students to honor their work as developing writers, scholars and teachers.
- Help create or support a student in a museum internship (locally or nationally). You could supplement a stipend; offer one for a significant volunteer opportunity; provide moving expenses and/ or living support for a student while they are pursuing the internship. Help our students jumpstart their careers in curating, museum education, or arts administration in an exciting way!
