Giving Opportunities

Give Back

Your gift will make an immediate difference to the continued excellence of the Department of Comparative Literature at UCLA – thank you.

Chair’s Discretionary Fund

The support of friends, alumni and community partners to the Chair’s Discretionary Fund allows the Comparative Literature faculty to actively promote initiatives in undergraduate teaching, graduate mentorship, dissemination of knowledge and research in areas that require a deep engagement with a constellation of linguistic, interdisciplinary and critical approaches to literature and culture, open to every region of the globe. We aim to provide a strong academic foundation for current and future generations of Comparative Literature scholars.

We also welcome support for the Michael Heim Memorial Lecture in Translation Distinguished Studies fund, which will contribute to fund an annual lecture in memory of Michael Heim and continue his legacy.
