The Saint Louis University Department of English will host a reception honoring the career and achievements of Joe Weixlmann, Ph.D., retiring professor of English and former provost of the University and dean of SLU’s College of Arts and Sciences.
The reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, in the Sinquefield State Room of DuBourg Hall, with comments by University President Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., and others beginning at 5 p.m.
An anonymous donor has made a $10,000 matching gift pledge to jumpstart a fundraising effort to assist the department’s graduate students in meeting their supplemental educational needs, such as traveling to undertake and present their research.
To participate in this effort, you can make a gift online to the English Department Development Fund. If you prefer to contribute by mail, please send a check to University Development (English Department), One N. Grand Blvd., DuBourg Hall Room 319, St. Louis, MO 63103.
