Fill the Hill!
October 28, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - October 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm
The Department of Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies invites you to participate!
We are grateful for your past charitable giving to the Department of Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies! In just a few days, UW-Madison will be opening up its next opportunity for charitable giving — Fill the Hill 2021. As happened last year, the University has allowed departments to participate as well, meaning that you are able to target your charitable giving more directly to the department of your choice. Beginning on Thursday, Oct. 28, 5:00 pm and lasting until Friday, Oct. 29, 6:00 pm CDT, 2021, the Fill the Hill website will be open. During this 25-hour period, navigate to www.uwflamingos.com and search for the giving tile of our department, Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies (CANES).
The CANES Department is dedicated to the study of classical antiquity in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. We are foundational to the university’s mission of rigorous and interdisciplinary training in the humanities. Our undergraduates are teaching in Wisconsin schools. Others are admitted to top programs for graduate study across the nation. Our doctoral students earn tenure-track positions at renowned colleges and universities. Gifts to CANES support our commitment to broaden the reach of our teaching and research and include diverse scholars and students in the future of our discipline. For example, in the fall of 2020, departmental funds covered an exciting series of Lecturers entitled “Adventures in Classics.” During the spring of 2021, we hosted a series of online lectures called “New Approaches to the Ancient Mediterranean World.”
Your contribution to CANES during the “Fill the Hill” event will be put toward the Ruth Miller Kuhlman Scholarship Fund. This fund supports undergraduate travel (e.g., to archaeological digs) and research during the summer months. These opportunities enhance the educational experiences of our undergraduate students, allowing them to participate in the vital educational mission of our department. With
your help, our department can offset the cost of undergraduate education for students in our programs and attract students from historically under-represented groups to our field. Please help support us in achieving these goals.
