Supporting the Department

Department of History Log

The extent and quality of the activities sponsored by the Department of History depends in large measure on our available funds and the generous support of donors. Endowments or significant targeted donations will enable us to increase our national visibility, expand our production of nationally-recognized scholarship, and to grow History programming and events. Naming opportunities are possible in conjunction with such gifts.

For more information about any of the opportunities to support The University of Alabama Department of History, please contact Lyndsay CumberlandAssociate Director of Development for the College of Arts & Sciences.
