Your Contributions Make a Difference. Support Student Goals!

Little by little, small donations make a big difference! Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated and allow the Department of English to assist and honor students in monumental ways. Your generosity supports:

  • Poetry and Pancakes, our annual get-together which features alumni readers (held during NEIU Weekend)

  • Travel funding to send students to national conferences, special events and symposia

  • Visiting writers

  • Our annual end-of-year Student Awards Ceremony and After-Party (held each May on the Friday before graduation)

These kind of events and programs give the English department its special identity as a place where students find additional resources and professionalizing opportunities. They demonstrate our commitment to providing students with extra-curricular activities that tuition dollars and fees do not cover. These opportunities help give our students the sense of a shared purpose and community not often available at a commuter campus.

We invite you to visit campus and attend any of events organized our department, The 82 or Seeds. If you are an alumnus, we also invite you to reconnect to NEIU and send us an email to let us know what you’re up to!

Your support and contributions truly make a huge impact.
