Drs. Steven and Jill Doner Kagle Undergraduate Assistantship Endowment
The purpose of the Drs. Steven and Jill Doner Kagle Undergraduate Assistantship is to encourage student interest in American literature and culture and to enhance the English Department's offerings in American literature; to help the department attract and retain quality students and to provide some students with the preparation and credentials for future success; and to serve as a model for future expansion of UTA opportunities.The endowment earnings will support undergraduate English majors who serve as undergraduate teaching assistants (UTAs) for faculty teaching lower-level American literature courses, such as English 130--Survey of American Literature or English 131--American Culture: Traditions and Texts. Students serving as UGAs for distance learning or summer travel classes in American literature and culture are also eligible for support.
