The 1960 Fund

Since the creation of an independent History Department in 1960, the department gift account supports:

  • Student travel to conferences
  • Field trips
  • Faculty development
  • Other departmental activities

Generous benefactors of the department fund this gift account because they believe in the core mission of a liberal arts education and the role played by history education.  The 1960 Fund, observing the History Department's creation, raises money for the gift account to continue supporting the excellent history majors and fine work of the department.
