Invest in the future of the humanities

Thank you from the Executive Dean

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences asks hard hitting questions, and seeks pertinent answers. What is the future of our human workforce? What lessons from our past are relevant for the future? How do creativity and curiosity impact our society? Our people think carefully, share generously, and collaborate fearlessly, amplifying the voices that most need to be heard, making worlds bigger, and transforming culture.

None of this work occurs in isolation. The HASS Faculty is committed to collaborating with our community to enable great change. Whether you are alumni, friend or industry partner, there are a number of ways you can get involved, and one of the most powerful is through philanthropic support. You can empower students to achieve greatness; enable research and discover new knowledge; or enhance our ability to improve educational outcomes into the future. We welcome any conversation about how we can create a future for the better, together.

To our countless supporters who have made a meaningful difference in our Faculty’s long history, and to anyone considering support of HASS in the future – we say thank you. You are part of a vibrant and vital community, who are building humanities and social sciences for a future that sorely needs them.
