There are a few ways you can stay connected to the department and university:


The continued interest and generosity of our alumni are key elements that help us maintain and improve one of the premier graduate economics programs in the world.  Your assistance plays a crucial role in helping our current crop of graduate students - your successors - achieve their full potential as researchers and teachers.  We hope that you will aid us in preserving and extending the important tradition of which you are a part, and want to remind you that gifts specifically earmarked for the Economics department come directly to us, and will be used wholly for the benefit of our students, and to strengthen our program.

As always, our greatest need is through our Annual Fund. Annual Fund gifts are discretionary so that the Chair of the Department can direct your contribution to our most pressing concerns and items where no other funds are available to use.
