Theatre Academic Fund

The Theatre Academic Fund is an unrestricted endowment account established for the Department of Theatre, academic program. Donations to this fund support and enhance the research and teaching mission of the department. The funds are used to supplement state accounts for the hiring of guest lecturers, research travel for faculty and graduate students.

The generous contributions of donors have assisted our graduate students and academic program in multiple ways including:

  • Travel for faculty research
  • Travel for graduate student research
  • Honorarium for a Guest Lecturer in the area of playwriting
  • Travel expense assistance for graduate students participating at the ATHE Conference

Contributions to the Theatre Academic Fund may be made via KUEA.
