Gifts from alumni and friends are significant in the day-to-day operations of the department as well as the long-term success of the program. By supporting the Black Studies Development Gift Fund you can invest in the current and future success of the department. Donations provide unrestricted support for both faculty and students including research and educational opportunities inside and outside the classroom such as conference travel, guest speakers, and community outreach activities. These gifts also give the chair flexibility when exciting research and advancement opportunities arise during the year. Please consider making a donation to the Black Studies Department so we may continue to attract the best faculty and students to MU, and provide excellent learning opportunities for students and the community.
