Greetings from PLC! Whether you are a former English major, a recent graduate student, a departed colleague, or a new friend of the English Department, we invite you to explore these pages for news about the people and events that make up our extended community. Go to the Alumni News page for a snapshot of recent accomplishments by graduates of English, or download an issue of the Newsletter for a more comprehensive view of life in the department. Please share your own news with us by sending an email to the Associate Department Head, Professor Heidi Kaufman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends and alumni support many of the activities that make us one of the most dynamic academic units on the University of Oregon campus. Many alumni make regular contributions to the Department’s Endowment, which funds a wide variety of initiatives, including small classes for English majors, undergraduate scholarships for study in London, financial aid for first-year graduate students, prizes for undergraduate and graduate work, and the Northwest Review, our award-winning literary magazine. You can learn more about all of these initiatives and many others by clicking on Supporting the Department.
