support CHE

Center for Culture, History, and Environment

Gifts to this fund provide general, discretionary support to the Director of the Center for Culture, History, and Environment.

Gifts may be used to enhance or expand the Center's teaching, research, and public service roles or to help the Center pursue new opportunities and address strategic priorities, including the top-tier research of CHE faculty and graduate students. Gifts may also be used for faculty, staff, and student recruitment, retention, and morale.

The Center for Culture, History and Environment draws together faculty, staff, graduate students, and others from a wide array of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences to investigate environmental and cultural change in the full sweep of human history.

Gifts support a wide array of transformative activities, including scholarships, fellowships, internships and travel opportunities; new research initiatives; annual place-based workshops; and public events and programs that enlighten and inspire people from all walks of life.

Gifts in any amount are needed and appreciated!
