Why I Give?

The tightly defined boundaries of disciplines in the humanities were collapsing.  The School of Liberal Arts was in its incipiency; this was the golden moment to lay the foundation for American Studies. It pleases me no end to see that we have Ray Haberski as director. His leadership and innovative spirit have given us an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in applied research. We need to help provide the resources and the support the program needs to continue.

— Paul Nagy, Emeriti Professor of Philosophy
