How You Can Support the College of Humanities

MARY AND ALEX DUNKEL, longtime donors to the Critical Languages Program, recently created a scholarship for students studying Russian art or artifacts of the 19th or 20th centuries.


The humanities have never been more important, for the students of today and tomorrow, and for the world at large. We are educating the future leaders of the global economy. Students who choose the Humanities will graduate with a broad and versatile set of skills, ready to change the world. The College of Humanities’ vision is to elevate lives, careers, and communities through innovative and fearless inquiries into the diversity of human belief, language, literature, and culture. Help us make that vision a reality at the University of Arizona.
