Giving to CMLL
The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures represents a truly unique,
deeply human connection for students to relate to the global community. The Department's
programs do this by offering students the opportunity, through the study of languages,
world literatures, and global cultures, to broaden and deepen their thinking, and
enhance their understanding of the world in which they will live and work.
It is true that academic disciplines in the Humanities do not have as many opportunities
for extramural funding support. This obviously introduces missed opportunities, for
researchers and teachers, and ultimately, the students they serve. CMLL's programs
all would benefit deeply from donor assistance. We can also assure every donor of
direct student benefit for any gift sponsoring our courses, programs, and study abroad
opportunities. The potentials are truly infinite.
Please contact the Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures, or the
College of Arts & Sciences Development Office at (806) 742-3833. You can also e-mail Amy Crumley, Development Officer for the College, at any time to discuss ways to make a gift.

- The Department has established the Lorum Stratton Study Abroad Scholarship Endowment, which assists students in studying abroad. The remarkable experience of being abroad—for
a semester, an academic year, or during a summer program—is deeply enriching. With
an assistive endowment, so many more students can participate in our abroad programs,
and gain knowledge, insights (and once-in-a-lifetime memories) which only experiencing
another culture can bring. For contribution statistics click here.
- The Department is also working to establish a scholarship to assist graduate students
in participating in professional conferences, symposia, and other important academic
events. Early entry into these venues is an important aspect of professional development,
as students research, prepare and present papers, articles, and other scholarly or
creative works. The cost of travelling to and from these events, along with lodging
and food, often prevents many students from participating. Such a scholarship would
provide a permanent resource to assist CMLL's graduate students, and deeply broaden
the quality of their graduate education at Texas Tech University.
CMLL is grateful for the support we have received through donor gifts. We specially
recognize our donors (in concert with their own wishes) in announcements, facility
placards and other appropriate venues.
Our benefactors have provided:
- A number of scholarships & prizes, which assist both undergraduate and graduate students, in a variety of disciplines.
- The establishment of two professorships:
- The Jean Charnier Qualia Professorship in Foreign Languages, which is in French.
- The Charles Qualia Endowed Chair, which is in Spanish.
