Endowment and bridge funding for programs and endowment for a faculty chair whose holder will serve as director of a center for the humanities.

The University of Kentucky Gaines Center for the Humanities requests $220,000 to be matched 4:1 by $880,000 in private contributions as part of a larger $1,980,000 campaign to strengthen and sustain its undergraduate humanities seminar, advance public humanities initiatives, and create the John R. Gaines Endowed Chair in the Humanities. Specific goals are to 1) enhance the level of excellence of humanities offerings of the Bale Boone Symposium in the Humanities and The Lafayette Seminar in Public Issues and 2) ensure the Center’s capacity to hire and retain a distinguished director with sufficient contacts and expertise to maintain and expand the range, significance, and intellectual quality of the Center’s humanities studies and programs.
