Your gifts to the Department of English’s various funds help to extend the rich rewards of English studies to students and faculty at UNL.

As one of the most vibrant and diverse departments in the university, English Department has a long-standing commitment to foster innovative scholarship and teaching, that is: to intellectual, creative, and pedagogical activities that enhance the capacity of our students to respond critically and imaginatively to a diverse range of texts and media and the lives they reflect.
